Join our Program to find Innovative Technologies in Mass Spec and Imaging at Metabolomics 2014

Date: June 23 to 26, 2014
Place: Tsuruoka, Japan

Marica/Washington Hotel

The goal of Shimadzu in metabolomics community is to provide innotative technologies. Towards this, we announced that we will participate in the 10th International Conference of the Metabolomics Society in Tsuruoka Japan.
Founded on the basis of "Contributing to Society through Science", Shimadzu is honor to introduce our innovative technologies of mass spectrometry and mass imaging to metabolomics society.

We look forward to your participation. Thank you.

Metabolome analysis for discovering biomarkers of cancers.

Improvements in analytical technologies have made it possible to rapidly determine the concentrations of thousands of metabolites in any biological sample, which has resulted in metabolome analysis being applied to various types of research, such as clinical, cell biology, and plant/food science studies. The metabolome represents all of the end products and by-products of the numerous complex metabolic pathways operating in a biological system. Thus, metabolome analysis allows one to survey the global changes in an organism's metabolic profile and gain a holistic understanding of the changes that occur in organisms during various biological processes, e.g., during disease development. In clinical metabolomic studies, there is a strong possibility that differences in the metabolic profiles of human specimens reflect disease-specific states. Recently, metabolome analysis of biofluids, e.g., blood, urine, or saliva, has been increasingly used for biomarker discovery and disease diagnosis. Mass spectrometry-based techniques have been extensively used for metabolome analysis because they exhibit high selectivity and sensitivity during the identification and quantification of metabolites. Here, we show metabolome analysis using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. Furthermore, we discuss metabolome analysis-based disease diagnosis.

Product Showcase


GCMS-TQ8040 is the first triple quadrupole with Smart Productivity for high efficiency sample throughput, Smart Operation for quick and easy method development, and Smart Performance for low detection limits and Scan/MRM.


Imaging Mass Microscope

The instrument is a combination of an optical microscope which allows the observation of high-resolution morphological images, with a mass spectrometer which identifies and visualizes the distribution of specific molecules.


The LCMS-8050 is capable of simultaneously obtaining both qualitative and quantitative information in a single analysis. Acquisition occurs so rapidly that MS/MS scans and MRM measurements can be performed concurrently while maintaining quantitative accuracy.
