Quadrupole Time-of-Flight Liquid Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer
The LCMS-9030 quadrupole time-of-flight (Q-TOF) mass spectrometer is a powerful instrument that integrates the world's fastest and most sensitive quadrupole technology with TOF capabilities for accurate mass measurement.
The LCMS-9030 provides superior sensitivity for quantitative and qualitative analysis of samples over a wide concentration rane, including ultra-trace compounds. Patented technologies ensure high resolution and excellent mass measurement accuracy (MMA), supporting structure elucidation and identification of unknown compounds. High throughput is achieved with Shimadzu's unique acceleration technologies designed for high-speed data acquisition.
High-Efficiency Quadrupole Technologies
UFaccumulation™ (Pat. US 10020181)
Ion accumulation in the collision cell, synchronized perfectly with short cycles of data acquisition, maximizes sensitivity.
UFgrating™ (Pat. US 9048082)
Shimadzu's world-class manufacturing capability has enabled the ion acceleration electrode to be made with substantial mechanical strength. This grating is able to withstand the high voltages needed for ultrafast ion pulsing.
UF-FlightTube™ (Patent Pending)
Mass accuracy needs mass stability. Shimadzu's temperature-controlled UF-FlightTube requires less frequent calibration, enabling you to run more samples.
iRefTOF™ (Pat. US 8772708, 9490114)
A computationally ideal electrostatic field has become a reality. Meticulously manufactured plate electrodes are stacked to create a reflectron which turns ions with no compromise in resolution or sensitivity.
A Slim, Floor-Standing Design
The simple and compact design conserves valuable laboratory space.

Food Contact Materials - GRAS or Gross?
Food Contact Materials (FCM) are any materials that come in contact with food during processing, storage, preparation or serving. The safety of these FCMs must be evaluated as they can migrate into the food supply and contaminate the food with compounds like Per-and Polyfluorinated substances (PFAS), mineral oils (MOSH/MOAH), and leachables/extractables from plastics containers (bisphenol A, heavy metals). This webinar will provide an introduction to FCMs, discuss the challenges faced by the food industry, and present the latest analytical technologies for FCMs.
LCMS-9030 Quadrupole Time-of-Flight Liquid Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer
The LCMS-9030 quadrupole time-of-flight (Q-TOF) mass spectrometer integrates the world' s fastest and most sensitive quadrupole technology with TOF architecture. A product of Shimadzu's engineering DNA, speed and effortless performance enable the LCMS-9030 to address qualitative and quantitative challenges with genuine confidence and ease.
News / Events
Handbook of Analysis Procedures for EPA method 533, EPA method 537.1 are now available.
The validity of the analysis performed by each laboratory needs to be confirmed by Quality Control (QC). This article section shows the general analytical procedure for fulfilling QC requirements. Note that the procedure could be modified depending on the situation in the lab and analysts.
Shimadzu has released the CLAM-2040, Fully Automated Sample Preparation Module for LCMS
The CLAM-2040 accompanies you on most of the analytical workflow and improves your overall throughput by drastically reducing the sample preparation time. Simply place the blood tubes in position and the CLAM-2040 performs the next steps automatically, from sample extraction, up to the LCMS analysis and data processing.
Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS)
Per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of persistent and harmful chemicals that can be commonly found in the environment globally. These anthropogenic chemicals can come from various sources such as manufacturing, industrial applications, food contact materials and consumer products, and eventually end up and accumulate in the water, soil and living organisms.
Interpretation of LC Chromatograms Facilitated by Mass Detection and the Mass-it™ Function
The LCMS-2050 mass spectrometer includes Mass-it functionality that can overlay compound mass (m/z) information, obtained with the mass spectrometer, onto UV chromatograms to support supplementing qualitative analysis results obtained using a UV detector.
Technical Background for the LCMS-2050, a Compact Mass Detector for LC
The LCMS-2050 single quadrupole mass spectrometer is highly compact in size, yet provides both high-speed and high-sensitivity analysis. Shimadzu’s technology has been condensed into an instrument miniaturized to the utmost.
Shimadzu has updated LC/MS/MS Method Package for Cell Culture Profiling Ver. 3 for LabSolutions LCMS
Version 3 of this method package adds metabolites characteristic of CHO cells, which are frequently used in the manufacture of monoclonal antibodies. Together with existing analytes, this Method Package enables the analysis of 144 compounds in under 20 minutes per sample.
