Shimadzu Laboratory for Advanced and Applied Analytical Chemistry

In connection with the Incentive Grant, UWM’s Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry received a grant from Shimadzu Scientific Instruments, Inc. in the amount of $1.13 million to offset the cost of analytical instrumentation. With Shimadzu’s support a world-class suite of instruments is now in place in the Department and available for education, faculty research programs, collaborative projects, and sponsored research. In recognition of Shimadzu’s generous support, the new laboratory is named the “Shimadzu Laboratory for Advanced and Applied Analytical Chemistry.”

Instrumentation includes the following Shimadzu products:

  • MALDI-7090 with AccuSpot and CHIP (MALDI TOF-TOF platform for proteomics, metabolomics, and tissue imaging)
  • LC-MS-IT-TOF (hybrid UPLC with integrated ion trap and TOF systems)
  • GC-MS QP-2010 Ultra with DI probe
  • Triple Quad LCMS-8040 (with high speed positive/negative ionization switching)
  • LC-MS-2020 single quad
  • ICP Mass Spectrometer
  • FTIR-IR Tracer NIR/FAR
  • UV-2600 spectrometer
