Shimadzu (Duisburg, Germany) has received two Red Dot Design Awards in the product design category for its new Nexera UHPLC series LC-40 and UV-1900 UV–vis spectrophotometer.

The Red Dot Design Awards are one of the three major design awards in the world with Shimadzu fending off competition to claim this year’s awards. Judged based on innovation, functionality, quality, ergonomics, and durability, more than 5500 products were submitted to the product design category by manufacturers and designers from 55 countries.

The award represents the third time in the company’s history that they have won a Red Dot Design Award, having previously picked up awards in 2013 and 2018.

The award ceremony was held in Essen, Germany, on 8 July 2019. An actual Nexera series instrument and an explanatory panel showing the UV-1900 will be displayed in the city’s Red Dot Museum for the next year.
