Nihongo|Shimadzu Corporation|株式会社島津製作所|Kabushiki-gaisha Shimazu Seisakusho (tyo|7701) is a manufacturer of precision instruments, measuring instruments and medical equipment, based in Kyoto, Japan.

The company was established by Genzo Shimadzu (島津 源蔵 "Shimazu Genzō") in 1875. X-ray devices, the spectrum camera, the electron microscope, and the gas chromatograph were developed and commercialized in advance of other Japanese companies. In 2002, Koichi Tanaka, a longstanding employee, won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for developing a method of mass spectrometric analysis of biological macromolecules. The company also developed an ultra-high speed video camera, HyperVision HPV-1, which is capable of recording at 1,000,000 FPS.

Other products developed by Shimadzu include head-mounted displays [ [ Shimadzu Data Glass 3/A] ] .

Shimadzu is the worlds only producer of a "Direct-Conversion" Flat Panel Detector for Cardiac, Angiography and General Radiography examinations. [ Safire FPD technology]
