Will showcase instruments and allows for enhanced product development

Shimadzu Scientific Instruments (SSI) has opened its new Solution Center in Columbia, MD, which will provide new scientific instruments, software platforms, and applications. The 4,100-sq.-ft. facility showcases the company’s instruments and platforms, as well as provides space for collaborative research and the development of new software applications.
 
The Solution Center showcases more than 30 scientific instruments, including molecular/atomic spectrophotometers, mass spectrometers, liquid/gas chromatographs, x-ray spectrometers, balances, TOC analyzers, and materials testers. The center also features high-definition video and conferencing equipment to facilitate customer interactions within the center and in collaboration with manufacturing, software, and R&D groups.
 
“We are excited to offer this new capability to our current and prospective customers,” said Shuzo Maruyama, president of Shimadzu Scientific Instruments. “Customers require that instruments and software fit their specific needs and workflows. Off-the-shelf or one-size-fits-all solutions are missing the mark for many customers. Much of our current success is due to our agility in being able to modify hardware or create software directly from specific customer input. With the addition of the Shimadzu Solution Center, we have greatly enhanced our potential to collaborate with our customers on research and the development of new instruments, software and diagnostic technologies.”
