Celebrating 50 Years of MS Innovation

The year 2020 marks 50 years since the release of Shimadzu's first mass spectrometry device, the LKB-9000. Over the past half century, our passion for innovation has led to multiple ground-breaking developments in MS technology.

With our considerable experience in the field, we take this opportunity to reflect on the past and look towards the future of MS. Through this we reaffirm our commitment as a company: to provide revolutionary products and services that contribute to society through technology, sustaining the health of the planet and of humankind.
