Metabolomics 2019

23.06.2019 – 27.06.2019
World Forum Conference Centre, The Hague, Netherlands


Booth P5


Shimadzu´s technologies are constantly driven by innovative thinking and new ideas, developing tools to deliver meaningful data and to help create better science. For the science of metabolomics, Shimadzu´s mass spectrometry platforms in GC-MS/MS, GC-GC-MS/MS and LC-MS/MS do more by bringing together robust, reliable detection together with UFMS (Ultra-Fast Mass Spectrometry) opening up new opportunities in finding more metabolites with greater accuracy and certainty.

At Metabolomics 2019, we will show our technologies and workflows for metabolism-based research including the new high-resolution accurate mass Q-TOF, the LCMS-9030. Visit our booth to discover our portfolio and chat with our experts!

Product Line-Up


MicroESI-9030 for Q-TOF LCMS-9030

We are pleased to announce that the Micro-ESI 9030, an optional micro flowrate ionization interface for Q-TOF LCMS-9030, has been released.
The Micro-ESI 9030 is an interface compatible with the Nexera Mikros MicroLC that enables micro flowrate analysis with the LCMS -9030. Micro flowrate analysis can be used to detect target components with higher sensitivity than with semi-micro flowrate compatible LCMS systems, which perform measurements within a flowrate range of 100 microL/min to 500 microL/min. In addition, it features shorter analysis times and is more durable than nano flowrate compatible LCMS systems, which perform measurements within a flowrate range of several 100 nL/min to 1 microL/min. The combination of Micro-ESI 9030 and Nexera Mikros supports a variety of user needs such as reducing new drug development times and development costs, shortening analysis times, and providing ease of maintenance. At the same time, it improves the sensitivity and operability of analysis with LCMS.

- LCMS-9030 Q-TOF: “A Q-TOF of Shimadzu’s engineering DNA! ”

The quadrupole time-of-flight (Q-TOF) LCMS-9030 system is a research grade mass spectrometer designed to deliver high-resolution, accurate-mass detection with incredibly fast data acquisition rates, allowing scientists to identify and quantify more compounds with greater confidence.


- MicroLC MIKROS: “Combines highest sensitivities of microflow LC with robustness of HPLC”

Nano flowrate-compatible LC systems, used in combination with MS detectors, for their benefit in term of sensitivity, are step by step abandoned due to the drawbacks associated to their use: low speed, long analysis, tendency for pipes to clog, difficulties to solve leakages, … In comparison, the microLC appears to be the perfect match between the need of sensitivity and the ease of use. The Nexera-Mikros, with a wide range of flowrates from 1 mL/min to 500 mL/min, will cover sensitivity needs while ensuring both durability and operability.


- PESI system DPiMS-2020: "Quick and Easy Measurement Without Sample Preparation"

The DPiMS-2020 is a single quadrupole mass spectrometer based on using probe electrospray ionization. It uses a probe to remove a micro quantity of liquid from the sample placed on the sample plate and inject it into the MS unit for mass analysis. It is extremely easy to operate and it is able to measure samples such as chemical products, food materials, and biological samples, directly or with very minimal sample pretreatment.
