A gas chromatograph is used for composition analysis of gasoline and its additives in order to improve fuels' performance. In addition to excellent performance, Shimadzu's GC systems improve productivity. For example, the Nexis GC-2030 system combines three standards into one to save analytical instrument and labor costs.

News / Events
Shimadzu has released the Brevis™ GC-2050
"Smaller, simpler, and easier to use – without compromising performance." That’s the demand from analysts. And that’s why Shimadzu developed the Brevis GC-2050. This new space-saving GC delivers uncompromising analytical performance in a modern yet rugged design, easily meeting the analysis needs of laboratories in a range of industries.
Latest issue of Shimadzu Journal, featuring Forensics / Toxicology, has come out.
This issue focuses on "Forensics / Toxicology", an area where science and technology are particularly important and needed. It starts with two customer interviews.
Shimadzu provides analytical equipment and solutions that can monitor not only the atmospheric environment, but also indoor working environments and direct emission sources. Here are some examples of measurements of inorganic and organic components in the air and indoor environment.
Cosmetics and Personal Care Products
The environment surrounding cosmetics and personal care products is changing. In addition to serving the original aesthetic purpose, cosmetics are required to be environmentally friendly and impart no adverse effects on animals.
