Clinical Research

Clinical Research Banner

The analysis of whole blood, plasma, serum and urine is a most insightful method in clinical research.

Since the sensitivity of analytical instrumentations systems has improved steadily in recent years, research results and reliability have increased as well.


In clinical applications, analytical instruments unfold a multitude of benefits:

  • They support the quality of human life. The concentration of medications in Therapeutic Drug Monitoring (TDM), is assured, even though this may change according to age and health conditions and is dependent on gender, genetic constitution or interferences with other drugs.

  • They help to save lives, particularly when it comes to time-critical situations, e.g. through acute intoxication, medical or drug abuse.

  • They accurately quantitate vitamins, minerals and trace elements

  • They are applied in genomics, proteomics and metabolomics.

Clinical research applications benefit from Shimadzu's complete portfolio covering chromatography and mass spectrometry (GC, GC-MS, GC-MS/MS, HPLC, UHPLC, LC-MS, LC-MS/MS), spectroscopy (UV-Vis, FTIR, AAS, EDX, ICP-OES), life sciences (MALDI-(TOF)-MS, CLAM-2000), and biopharmaceutical.

For next-generation brain science, Shimadzu provides LABNIRS, an imaging technology for visualization of brain functions by functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS).
