Microplate Technology Usage and Trends

A survey of The Scientist's readers identifies product trends and developments in microplate technology.

By | August 29, 2014

In August, The Scientist conducted a brief survey of our readers to identify product trends and developments in microplate technology. More than 370 life-science researchers told us how they use microplate technology and the factors that influence their purchasing decisions.  

Most respondents use microplate technology for cell biology and assay development applications. (Multi-option question: one respondent may have selected more than one option.)

 

The top two detection modes used by respondents were absorbance and fluorescence intensity. (Multi-option question: one respondent may have selected more than one option.)

 

The primary reasons respondents use microplate technology are to automate repetitive tasks and ensure reproducible results and to improve data quality.

 

The top factors respondents look for when purchasing microplate technology are flexibility, accuracy, and reliability. (Multi-option question: one respondent may have selected more than one option.)
