Great, simple and nice product.
"The product delivers high quality result compared to other product. The instrument is easy to operate but software somewhat complicated and not advance. We surely would like to recommend this product."

It doesn't work more than 2 months without a problem!
Application Area:Food chemistry
"In the short time that the equipment worked correctly it was possible to see that it is practical to use, has good sensitivity and is easy to use in general. The problem with this equipment is that it does not work for more than two months without appearing any problem and stop. In two and a half years it doesn't work more than 40 percent of the time. After the warranty period the problems are still accumulating without a guarantee that having enough budget will solve them. This also depends on the representation of the country and, if it is Portugal, I advise you to not buy. The lab's worst acquisition ever."

A Good Reliable Instrument
Application Area:small molecule quantification
"A very sensitive, easy to maintain workhorse triple-quad for low-level quantification of small molecules. Like most software for complex instruments, it takes a while to get used to but it is very powerful and logical. The local technical support team have been great, very responsive and knowledgeable. We have had only one year of experience with this instrument, but it has met our expectations in all but one area. It does not have a heated ESI source, so we have had to modify some methods that were transferred from an instrument that does have a heated source. In the future, I would not purchase an instrument without a heated ESI, which is not available on this model."

System is "working horse" for labs. Reliable ms-system.
Application Area:bioequivalence of pharmacy drugs
"This LCMS is reliable and reproducibility for bioequivalence analysis. LC-system one of the best system. But the software is not easy to use. Cheap for a mass-spectrometer."

Great instrument with sensitive data.
Application Area:clinical diagnostics
"Shimadzu is a high profile company providing very good instruments. We use LCMS-8040 at our institute and the results are always good. I recommend for it."

Excellent value for money, very reliable
Application Area:Environmental Analysis
"We have been working with Shimadzu LC-IT-TOF mass spectrometry system since 2007. We have acquired a LCMS/MS model 8040 system last year. The mass spectrometer is connected to a Nexera series 30 UHPLC. The performance and reliability is quite impressive. With this instrument we have done several research works at master and PhD. level analysis of emerging contaminants of concern and also routine benzene exposure biomarkers (uSPMA and uTTMA). "
