Comments About the Interview

Shimadzu provides a broad range of analytical instruments indispensable for research, development, and quality control in a variety of fields. Recent years, with the widespread adoption of HPLC systems, there is growing demand for detection with higher selectivity and improved qualitative functionality. An MS detector achieves these requirements. We have continued to pursue improved ease-of-use for mass spectrometers as HPLC detectors.
