Global Laboratory Products Purchasing Trends, 2016–2017

An End-user Perspective on the Purchasing Process, Product Budgets, and Top Companies for Laboratory Products


Readers of Lab Manager Magazine were invited to participate in an online survey in July 2016. To qualify for survey participation, readers had to play a role in their laboratory’s purchasing process, be familiar with their laboratory’s product budgets, and represent a laboratory that either uses or plans to use products in 1 or more of the 7 specified laboratory product categories: instruments, equipment, chemicals, reagents and kits, general lab supplies, plasticware, and glassware. A total of 557 decision makers qualified for and completed the survey, answering questions on purchases, budgets, top companies, and purchasing preferences. Respondents were segmented by type of laboratory: academic, biopharma, government, industrial, and clinical.
