EDXIR-Analysis Contaminant Finder/Material Inspector
EDX-FTIR Contaminant Finder/Material Inspector
EDXIR-Analysis software is specially designed to perform qualitative analysis using data acquired by an energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) fluorescence spectrometer and a Fourier transform infrared spectrophotometer (FTIR). This software is used to perform an integrated analysis of data from FTIR, which is excellent at the identification and qualification of organic compounds, and from EDX, which is excellent at the elementary analysis of metals, inorganic compounds and other content. It then pursues identification results and the degree of matching. it can also be used to perform EDX or FTIR data analysis on its own. The library used for data analysis (containing 485 data as standard) is original to Shimadzu, and was created through cooperation with water supply agencies and food manufacturers. Additional data can be registered to the library, as can image files and document files in PDF format. It is also effective for the linked storage of various types of data as electronic files.
To perform qualitative analysis automatically, simply click “Analyze Both Data” and select the EDX/FTIR data. This heightens the efficiency of data analysis and provides strong support for contaminant analysis.
With the data comparison function, which calculates the degree of matching between the actual measured data and the data registered in the library, the software can be used for countermeasures against "silent change" and for other confirmation tests.
If data for a sample were acquired by instruments other than EDX and FTIR instruments (such as a chromatograph, mass spectrometer, or surface observation system), it can be converted into PDF format and then registered, enabling linked storage to the EDX/FTIR data.

Analytical Solutions for Microplastics
Shimadzu provides analytical and measuring instruments for the study of a variety of plastic materials: for R&D, characteristic evaluation of raw materials, quality control for plastic products, and deterioration analysis. With these diverse techniques, Shimadzu provides optimal solutions for microplastics research.
Shimadzu has released the IRSpirit-X Series
IRSpirit FTIR spectrophotometers are extremely compact, but can still be used with standard accessories from Shimadzu and other manufacturers. IRSpirit instruments come with IR Pilot software, which offers 23 application programs without the need for parameter setup. Measure multiple samples with just a few clicks.
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.
