The study of protein research is growing in complexity, leading to increased demand on the instrumentation used to conduct the research, and scientists are being tasked to meet these growing demands while dealing with greater budget constraints. With that, both biologists and chemists are looking more to their instrumentation providers to supply them with innovative approaches to meeting these growing demands while continuing to be mindful of the bottom line.

This new report provides key insight into the purchasing drivers for the instrumentation used in protein research and to provide a better understanding of the requirements and trends of scientists who engage in this type of research. In Protein Research: Strategies for Marketing to Biologists and Chemists, research methods are identified that help suppliers better understand ways to provide more streamlined products that cross the multiplicity of tools and techniques used in the lab.

Accordingly, this report closely investigates the core similarities and differences in the purchasing habits of biologists and chemists. Marketing efforts can be adjusted to appeal to the way biologists and chemists approach their research READ MORE >
