Introduction

HTStec's Mobile Technology In The Lab Trends 2015 report was published on 23 April 2015. This 49 page market report summarizes the results of HTStec’s industry-wide global web-based benchmarking survey on the use of mobile technology to monitor and control of lab instruments and automated systems carried out in April 2015. The survey was initiated by HTStec as part of our tracking of emerging life science marketplaces. The questionnaire was compiled to determine current interest and end-user requirements for mobile applications (apps) used to monitor and control lab instruments and automated systems. The results of the survey are intended to be used by instrument vendors to target their future R&D efforts on mobile technology and will assist them to bring new apps to the customer earlier. Equal emphasis was given to soliciting opinion from all market segments using mobile technology in their labs or from persons interested in the opportunities presented by monitoring or controlling lab instruments or automated systems via apps. The report is based on 55 responses from Pharma, Biotech and University Labs, mainly in North America and Europe.
