Shimadzu Scientific Instruments (SSI) recently announced it has opened the Shimadzu Solution Center, intended to better meet customer needs for instrument design and development. The 4,100-sq-ft facility operates out of SSI’s North American headquarters in Columbia, Md., and is open to customers. In addition to showcasing Shimadzu instruments and platforms, the center will also provide space for more collaborative research, and enables SSI to more quickly develop new software applications and focus-based solutions to better serve growing customer demands.
“We are excited to offer this new capability to our current and prospective customers,” said Shuzo Maruyama, president. “Customers require that instruments and software fit their specific needs and workflows. Off-the-shelf or one-size-fits-all solutions are missing the mark for many customers. Much of our current success is due to our agility in being able to modify hardware or create software directly from specific customer input. With the addition of the Shimadzu Solution Center, we have greatly enhanced our potential to collaborate with our customers on research and the development of new instruments, software and diagnostic technologies.”
