  • Shimadzu Scientific Instruments

Sep 2012
Shimadzu Scientific Instruments of Columbia, Md., has opened the Shimadzu Center for Advanced Analytical Chemistry at the University of Texas at Arlington to give researchers there access to enhanced capabilities for trace qualitative and quantitative analysis. The center contains $6 million worth of chromatography, mass spectrometry and spectroscopy equipment. The instruments will be used to research illnesses such as cancer and malaria, and to develop nanofabrication materials for industry. Kevin Schug has been named the Shimadzu Distinguished Professor of Analytical Chemistry. An associate professor of chemistry and biochemistry, he will oversee the new laboratory.

The chemical method of separating compounds dissolved in one phase (usually mobile) through its equilibration with a second phase (usually stationary). The mechanism of separation may involve partition, adsorption, permeation or exclusion, or ion exchange.
mass spectrometry
An instrumental technique that utilizes the mass-to-charge ratio of charged particles as recorded from a mass spectrometer in order to determine the mass of a particle as well as the chemical makeup, or elemental ionic composition of a given sample or molecule.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
