LCMS-9030 Quadrupole Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer

The LCMS-9030 is the first quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometer to be produced in Japan that combines excellent sensitivity and resolution. It combines technology cultivated through the development of triple quadrupole mass spectrometers, a major product at Shimadzu, with newly developed patented proprietary technology. It is effective for the quantitation, identification, and structural analysis of trace compounds with complicated structures, in fields such as the environment, forensic medicine, foods, and the life sciences.
