Solution System Packages

AOC Series Auto Injectors and Auto Samplers

Shimadzu offers a liquid autosampler for every price point and sample capacity need. The liquid autosamplers dramatically improve the work efficiency and reliability of GC analysis. No matter your budget or total sample count there is an autosampler combination to fit all laboratory needs.

AOC-6000 Plus

The AOC-6000 Plus Multifunctional Autosampler enables various syringes injections, including liquid injection, headspace (HS) injection, and solid-phase microextraction (SPME) injection. The automatic syringe exchange RTC (Robotic Tool Changer) function enables continuous sample injection using different syringes. By combining with the Twin Line MS system, different analytical methods such as SPME and HS can be performed continuously without changing the column.

Optic-4 Multimode Inlet

Offering multiple modes of injection including ultra-fast heating and large-volume injection, the Optic-4 can easily accommodate a wide variety of applications.

HS-10 Headspace Injection System

A cost-effective HS-10 headspace sampler offers a smaller carousel and loop mode sampling, great for routine laboratory work.

HS-20 Headspace Injection System

With both loop and loop/trap models, the HS-20 dedicated headspace sampler is an optimal solution for analyzing a wide range of volatile organic components (VOC) in a variety of sample matrices. Perfect for use with either GC or GC-MS.

Frontier Lab Pyrolyzer

Not all GC and GCMS samples can be liquid or gas, sometimes solids like plastics need to be analyzed. Using the PY-3030 operators can characterize virtually any organic material, from biomass to synthetic polymers using single- or dual-stage pyrolysis. The system comes equipped to run multiple techniques including Evolved Gas (EGA), Single-shot Analysis (PY) and many more.

TD-30 Thermal Desorption Unit

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

Nexis SCD-2030

The Nexis™ SCD-2030 is a next-generation sulfur chemiluminescence detection system.

Switching Detector System

This Gas Chromatograph uses a switching element at the column outlet to direct separated target compounds into multiple, appropriate detectors without a loss in sensitivity.

Backflushing System

The backflush gas chromatography system discharges high-boiling point components efficiently through the injection port split vent to reduce analysis time, and prevent column deterioration and detector contamination.

Heart-Cut System

The heart cutting system uses two chromatographic columns with different separation characteristics to separate specific compounds from complex original samples for quantitation. It can achieve high separation analysis which cannot be achieved
 by single chromatographic column.

Detector Splitting System

This system splits compounds eluting from an analytical column to multiple detectors to obtain multiple chromatograms, saving laboratories time and money.

Comprehensive GCxGC System

Shimadzu’s GC x GC offers about 10 times greater peak capacity of conventional one-dimensional chromatography, allowing separation of overlapping peaks based on differences in polarity.


The multi dimensional heart cutting gas chromatography system, incorporates a “multi Deans switch” The “multi Deans switch” greatly increases separation power and simplifies the normally difficult separation and quantification of compounds in complex, multi-component samples.
