Progress in medical and pharmaceutical technology is a key driver to increase people’s life expectancy. Furthermore, research leading to advanced diagnostics, treatments and therapies assist to fight and cure illnesses. Drugs help to overcome diseases or in case of chronic or incurable cases, they support to continuously take part in social life.

Drug testing

In drugs, side effects from interfering substances and contaminations are undesirable. This is why it is important to use the purest possible substances and purified equipment and materials in the production of drugs. In the production of medicines, methods and rules for the manufacture, storage, quality and testing of drugs are standardised and defined in Pharmacopoeias.

Broad variety of analytical solutions

From Drug Discovery to Quality Control, Shimadzu’s wide range of solutions supports the pharmaceutical industry through chromatography (GC and HPLC), spectroscopy (UV-Vis, FTIR, AAS, ICP), mass spectrometry (LC-MS, GC-MS), sum parameter (TOC), and MALDI-TOF systems including MS imaging. Shimadzu combines a long history in the market with a comprehensive product portfolio and expertise in regulatory compliance, making the company the perfect partner for the pharmaceutical industry.
