Shimadzu has been awarded a “Red Dot: Best of the Best Award 2021” in the product design category for its MALDImini-1.

Shimadzu (Duisburg, Germany) has been awarded a “Red Dot: Best of the Best Award 2021” in the product design category for its MALDImini-1. The prize is the highest award in this competition and is reserved for the best products in a category of groundbreaking design.

“The winners of the ‘Red Dot: Best of the Best’ have demonstrated unique design competency. Their objects set trends in product design and give a glimpse of future developments,” said Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and CEO of Red Dot.

With a history of more than 60 years, the Red Dot Design Award appraises the best products created every year. Alongside the German iF Award and the US IDEA Award, it is one of the major three design awards in the world.

Shimadzu’s MALDImini-1 digital ion trap mass spectrometer fits on a space the size of a DIN A3 sheet, allowing installation in places where mass spectrometers could not previously fit. It enables ion trapping up to 70,000 Da and the MS/MS and MS3 functionality of the digital ion trap allows researchers to perform comprehensive structural analyses.
