Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry

Since its first bench-top gas chromatograph/mass spectrometer (GC/MS) was sold in 1979, Shimadzu has been a leader in design innovations, such as our front access ion source, high efficiency ion optics, 20,000 u/second scan speed, and post-quadrupole focusing lenses. Together, these innovations provide unparalleled instrument performance and simplified operation and maintenance. With the addition of the GCMS-TQ8040 triple quadrupole GC/MS/MS, Shimadzu offers a comprehensive series of GC/MS and GC/MS/MS instruments for every application.

Sample Introduction Options

AOC-6000 Multifunctional Autosampler

Multifunctional autosampler which dramatically improves GC/MS analysis productivity

Optic-4 Inlet for Gas Chromatography

Multimode Inlet for Gas Chromatograph-Mass Spectrometer

HS-20 Headspace Samplers

The HS-20 Headspace Sampler series is designed for sampling volatile organic components (VOCs) in a wide range of sample matrices. The HS-20 Headspace Sampler series can be used for traditional static HS applications, or HS-trap methods requiring lower detection limits.

DI-2010 Direct Sample Inlet Device

The DI-2010 Direct Sample Inlet Device allows a sample to be introduced directly into the ion source without passing through a GC column.

Frontier Lab Pyrolyzer and Accessories

Characterize virtually any organic material, from biomass to synthetic polymers using single- or dual-stage pyrolysis.

EST Evolution P&T and Centurion Autosampler

Reliable volatiles analysis with low carryover, superior moisture control, and easy maintenance.

Twin Line MS System

The Twin Line MS System provides an innovative approach to productivity improvement for users who need to run multiple applications with different capillary columns on a single GC/MS.

TD-30 series Thermal Desorption Unit

The TD-30 is the optimal solution for gas and materials analysis. Its outstanding processing ability and excellent expandability provide strong support for all types of analysis, for example measuring air quality in buildings, VOCs of interior car materials, or even odors in packaging.

Software Packages


GCMSsolution software conveniently combines all of the functions required for GC/MS and GC/MS/MS instrument operation, data acquisition, data processing, and reporting into four logical modules.


Industry-standard NIST and Wiley libraries are indispensable tools for all GC/MS users. Additional libraries for environmental, forensic, clinical, and flavor/fragrance applications are also valuable search tools for the specific fields of study.

Smart Database Series

The Smart Database Series is a collection of databases designed to help the user create MRM methods for GC-MS/MS easily and automatically.

LabSolutions Insight

Multi-analyte Quantitation Software for GC/MS and GC-MS/MS.
