Our principles have now widely expanded to global promotion of regional development through key partnerships in science and technology, cultivation of scientists and facilitation of educational activities.
We, the employees, collectively call these social contributions the “SHIMADZU Excellence in Science Program” and will continue our commitment to socially beneficial activities.
World Class Collaboration Initiatives with You
With our knowledge in advanced science and technology, we work closely with renowned institutions and organisations to expand our research and development capabilities.
National University of Singapore (NUS) –
NUS Environmental Research Institute (NERI)
Our research collaboration with NERI addresses complex and challenging issues in environment and water. We work together to develop and apply fully automated and solvent minimised sample preparation procedures that had been integrated with mass spectrometry for water quality monitoring.
Nanyang Technological University (NTU), School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences – Division of Chemistry and Biological Chemistry (CBC)
To expose students to relevant working environment using analytical tools, we work together with CBC in our joint Chemistry Teaching Lab to conduct undergraduate training programmes.
Singapore Polytechnic’s (SP) School of Chemical and Life Sciences (CLS) entered into an agreement with Shimadzu (Asia Pacific) to create the SMARTLab, where students are trained on state-of-the-art innovations in analytical technologies. This lab is designed to enable the next generation of technologists with latest skills and to prepare them for Industry 4.0. This will in turn help to transform Singapore’s manufacturing landscape.
Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) – Shimadzu Food Safety and Innovation Centre
Working together with NYP towards our goal of improving food quality testing and analysis, our instruments play crucial roles in Chromatography & Mass Spectrometry techniques for food safety applications.
University of Malaya (UM) – Shimadzu-UMMC Centre for Xenobiotic Studies (SUCXeS)
The only core facility in Malaysia, capable of analysis on various types of drugs and xenobiotic compounds, including poisons, adulterants, toxic compounds, pollutants and natural products.
Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) – Institute for Tropical Biology and Conservation (ITBC)
ITBC pursues research in tropical biodiversity and champion conservation efforts. The success of conservation efforts is ensured via transfer of knowledge obtained from eco research conducted by them.
Philippine Institute of Pure and Applied Chemistry (PIPAC)
PIPAC is an ISO/IEC 17025-accredited institute that helps to ensure the quality and safety of consumer products, such as food, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, environmental and biological samples, etc.
Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT)
We collaborate with IIT Bombay to validate biomarkers for glioma and meningioma using targeted proteomics for development of diagnostic and prognostic kits.
Republic Polytechnic joined hands to set up a research laboratory facility for Pre-employment Training as well as Continuing Education and Training curriculum delivery. The lab will also do research in sustainable materials, functional foods (healthy aging) and urban farming.
