About this report
Readers of the Lab Manager Magazine were invited to participate in an online survey in September 2014. To qualify for survey participation, readers were required to play a role in their laboratory’s purchasing process, be familiar with their laboratories’ product budgets, and represent a laboratory that either uses or plans to use products in one or more of the 7 specified laboratory product categories. A total of 467 decision makers qualified for and completed the survey, answering questions on their laboratory purchases, budgets, industry drivers and restraints, preferred suppliers, and purchasing preferences. Respondents were segmented by academic, biopharmaceutical, government, industrial, and patient care organizations.
