We’ve long known that scientific customers can exhibit remarkable brand loyalty. When we ask what made you choose this product over another, the answer is consistently “It’s what has worked for me in the past” or “It was recommended to me by a colleague.” Such was the case when we last explored the antibody market […]

The 2017 Market for Research Antibodies: Keys to Success for Commercial Suppliers is BioInformatics LLC’s newest report, a comprehensive analysis of this lucrative market. Designed specifically for suppliers of commercial, pre-made catalog antibodies, this primary research report identifies scientists’ expectations and preferences with regards to usage, brands, purchasing, product quality and budgets. For companies competing […]

Surface science technologies include instruments involved in analyzing and observing the chemical and physical surface properties of a material, especially through the use of various microscopy techniques. As described in our report, The Surface Science Market: Outlook to 2020, we examine market size, share and growth for optical, electron, scanning probe, confocal & advanced microscopes, […]

With 2016 sales of $3.8 billion, we project the mass spectrometry market is on track for solid growth this year, buoyed by new innovations and detection capabilities across several vendors’ product lines. The market’s growth will be fueled by applications in life science, food safety and clinical research. Quadrupole LC/MS demand accounts for about one-third […]

In our 2017 IBO Review & Forecast issue, we report that instrument and laboratory product companies, just like other industries, felt the effects of 2016’s high degree of uncertainty. Political developments, such as Brexit and the US election, as well as economic questions, including growth expectations for China and the possibility of higher US interest […]

Cell-based assays are an essential component to any life scientist’s tool kit. Whether in academic or industry-based research, the versatility of cell-based assays has allowed for them to be employed in a wide range of applications. These assays allow scientists to analyze complex cellular functions, to probe the relationship between cellular dysfunction and disease, to […]

Scientists were among the first to use the Internet to publish and share information and to communicate with each other. The suppliers of lab instruments and consumables were among the first to identify their customer’s digital behavior and respond with email marketing to direct them to the earliest online catalogs and e-commerce systems. This evolution […]

We recently conducted an in-depth survey of more than 500 scientists currently using, or planning to adopt, the remarkable technology CRISPR/Cas9. Based on user-submitted budget data and our estimate of the incidence in which CRISPR/Cas 9 is currently used in labs, we estimate the market for CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing products is $200 million. And the […]

This week we’ll be releasing the results of our survey of over 600 Scientists currently using, or planning to adopt, CRISPR/Cas9 on their research. Since the advent of molecular biology technology in the 1970s, there has been steady progress in the ability to alter, or edit, gene sequences at the genomic level. The recent development […]
