PQY-01 Photoreaction Evaluation System
*The photoreaction evaluation system PQY-01 is the successor to the photoreaction quantum yield evaluation system QYM-01.
This system can measure the number of photons absorbed, which is necessary for calculating the quantum yield of photoreactions.
Photoreaction Quantum Yield:
For a comparison to data obtained with the conventional method using a chemical actinometer, refer to LAAN-A-UV-E041 Application News bulletin No. A478.
This photoreaction evaluation system was developed by Shimadzu Corporation, under the supervision of Professor Osamu Ishitani and Associate Professor Yusuke Tamaki of the Department of Chemistry, Graduate School of Science and Engineering, Tokyo Institute of Technology.

The all-in-one Lightway includes a software function that guides the necessary operating steps to the user and all the elements required for monitoring photoreaction processes in real time, which makes it easy to measure photons.
Eliminates individual differences resulting from how chemical actinometers are made.
Using an LED irradiation light source* ensures consistent measurements for many hours.

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.
