Shimadzu Corporation has opened a new European Innovation Center in Duisburg, Germany. The new facility will merge Shimadzu’s state-of-the-art analytical technologies with prominent topics, market expertise, and scientific research guided by some key opinion leaders.

Scientists from well-known universities are cooperating with Shimadzu on this new venture, including Luigi Mondello, University of Messina, Italy; Erich Leitner, Graz University of Technology, Austria; Uwe Karst, University of Münster, Germany; Franck Saint-Marcoux, University Hospital of Limoges, France; Gerard Hopfgartner, University of Geneva, Switzerland; and Frank Walther, Technical University of Dortmund, Germany.

The new facility will focus on four key scientific areas: clinical applications, imaging technology, food, and composites, with an emphasis being placed on the development of new methods, tools, techniques, diagnostics, and solutions.

“It is [because of] our commitment to society and [to] ourselves that Shimadzu remains dedicated in our pursuit of technology and [the] accumulation of knowledge,” said Dr. Teruhisa Ueda, President and CEO of Shimadzu Corporation.

The new facility follows in the footsteps of Shimadzu’s other Innovations Centers located in Maryland, USA, Beijing, China, and Singapore.
