European Mass Spectrometry Award : Shimadzu awarded for Exceptional Product Line Strategy

Shimadzu has been awarded the 2008 Frost & Sullivan European Mass Spectrometry Product Line Strategy Award. It is presented each year to a company that has demonstrated the most insight into customer needs and product demands. The recipient company should have optimized its product line by leveraging products with the various price, performance, and feature points required by the market.

“We are very happy to receive this award in Shimadzu Europe’s 40th anniversary year”, said Jurgen Kwass, General Manager at Shimadzu Europa, Duisburg/Germany. “Over the last years, the company has continued to grow in all market segments we offer. Based on new hardware and software developments as well as on interdisciplinary approaches Shimadzu could extent its market shares. To mention just one example: since 2003, our market share in the GCMS segment has doubled.”

“Shimadzu’s easy-to-use MS technology provides high accuracy and sensitivity in proteomics, metabolomics, glycomics, lipidomics and polymer analysis”, said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Suraj Ramanathan. “To offer an outstanding solution for the expanding field of microorganism identification by MALDI-TOF technology, third party software such as SARAMIS by AnagnosTec, has been added to the portfolio. Shimadzu’s systems deliver unmatched results in considerably short time spans covering a wide sample range.”
