Biopharm Reports has carried out a comprehensive market study of the laboratory use of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR). This involved the participation of 363 experienced end-users and profiled current practices, developments, trends and end-user plans over the next three years, as well as growth and opportunities. These areas include growth in the use of NMR, Instrument suppliers, NMR instruments, needs and innovation requirements, hyphenated NMR techniques, main suppliers of NMR accessories or consumables, NMR instrument frequencies, main NMR applications, biological applications of NMR, current probe designs or capabilities requirements, NMR runs each month, dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP-NMR), per sample running costs, NMR software, NMR systems, flow-through techniques, NMR spectroscopy types, multi-dimensional NMR, molecule types studied, isotopes used and other areas. Its findings provide a wealth of market information on the current and developing used of NMR.
Based on recent trends in the numbers of NMR runs carried out in their laboratories, end-users' own estimates of by how much (% increase or % decrease) their laboratory use of NMR has changed over the last three years. Also, based on current trends in the numbers of samples analysed in their laboratories, end-users' own estimates of by how much (% increase or % decrease) they anticipate their laboratory use of NMR will change over the next three years.
