Sample Holder/Stocker for Contaminant Measurement
Measure the Samples Kept in the Holder with EDX and FTIR The Holder Can Be Used as the Sample Stocker after the Measurement
- Enables More Efficient Analyses
This foldable holder consists of adhesive layer with samples attached and polypropylene film designed for fluorescence X-ray. When using EDX for measurement, close the holder and place the polypropylene film directly to the irradiation side (downside). When using FTIR for measurement, open the holder and press the samples attached to the adhesive layer against the ATR prism. This enables the replacement of samples, at a minimum, saving on labor and making analysis more efficient..
- Prevents Loss of Samples
Close the holder after the measurement and it can be used as a sample stocker. It is not necessary to transfer the samples to other containers, so there is no danger of losing samples.

How to Use with FTIR
EDX-FTIR Contaminant Finder/Material Inspector EDXIR-Analysis
Provides Strong Support for Contaminant Identification Analysis
High-accuracy identification analysis can be performed automatically by measuring one sample with EDX and FTIR, and then analyzing both data sets with EDXIR-Analysis.

Shimadzu has released the MAP-100
The MAP-100 automates the typical steps needed to isolate microplastics. This improves the reproducibility of the analytical workflow, enables lab technicians to focus on other tasks, and makes handling of reagents safer.
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.
Given that cellulose nanofibers（CNFs）offer attractive physical characteristics, such as light weight, strength, and hardness, they not only enable materials with advanced functionality, but are expected to be used as a reinforcing material that can reduce the weight of composite materials.
Shimadzu has released Infrared Microscope AIMsight
Shimadzu has released Infrared Microscope AIMsight an automatic analysis system that can be used with confidence from your first analysis, equipped as standard with enhanced functionality to support analyses.
Shimadzu has released the AIRsight, Infrared/Raman Microscope
Raman and FTIR microscopy in perfect harmony. Infrared and Raman Microscope based on a combination of two analytical techniques to provide complementary molecular information. The AIRsight system improves the efﬁciency of analytical operations by making it easy to perform all process steps from sample observation to data analysis.
In order to reduce plastic waste, the development of eco-friendly alternative materials is being promoted. As an alternative, biomass plastics and biodegradable plastics are becoming more widely available. Biodegradable Plastics are plastics that are decomposed into low-molecular compounds by microorganisms in the environment. So they break down easily in nature, which is an opposite characteristic of petroleum-based plastics.
