Executive Summary

  • This market report summarizes the results of HTStec’s 4th industry-wide global web-based benchmarking survey on multi-mode microplate readers carried out in September 2013.
  • The study was initiated by HTStec as part of its ongoing tracking of life science technologies and marketplaces. The questionnaire was compiled to address the needs and potential interests of the microplate reader vendor community. The main objectives of this global benchmarking study were to comprehensively document current end user experiences, opinions, practices and preferences for multi-mode microplate readers, and likely future requirements for such products. A focus of this report update was on what influences future purchasing decisions and the use of new/emerging read modes/application areas. However, a significant number of the questions were unchanged so they can be directly compared with HTStec’s previous reports (the last one on multi-mode readers was published in September 2011).
  • The survey looked at the following aspects of multi-mode (MM) plate readers as practiced today (2013) and in a few cases as predicted for the future (2016): current use of MM plate readers; vendor’s MM plate readers present in respondents lab; vendor’s MM plate readers respondents make greatest use of; number of MM plate readers in respondent’s lab and average functional lifetime of readers; application areas where MM plate readers are most used; influence of brand on purchasing selection; preferred brand and duration of brand loyalty; what influences the decision to switch brand; average price paid for a MM plate reader in the past 3 years; influence of price on a previous purchasing selection; willingness to consider an unknown brand if it offered equal performance at a lower price to the preferred brand; maximum price-point for a fully specified MM plate reader; relative use of different MM plate reader detection modalities; current level of interest/use in label-free detection on a MM plate reader; whether existing label-free options on a MM plate reader have met expectations; opinion/preference on the future deployment/availability of label-free on MM plate reader; MM plate reader accessible assays/applications respondent’s expect label-free to add most value; opinion on the addition of microscopic cell imaging to a MM plate reader platform; influence of the availability of cell imaging on some new MM plate reader platforms on future purchasing consideration of these readers or brands; level of importance on having cell imaging enabled on respondent’s next purchase of a MM plate reader; assays which respondent’s currently run on MM plate reader they would like to multiplex (correlate) with microwell cell imaging; opinion on existing provision of fluorescence lifetime (FLT) on specialty plate readers; effect of lack of FLT provision on a MM reader on readout adoption; usefulness of bulk fluorescence readout in detecting changes in 3D cell cultures derived from various approaches; where MM plate reader manufacturers should improve their offerings with respect to reading 3D cell cultures; frequency of purchasing a MM plate reader; future plans to purchase a MM plate reader and expected budget allocation; vendor’s MM plate reader systems respondents most want to purchase; where respondents get most product information when considering the purchase of a new MM plate reader; what are the main drivers in reaching a purchasing decision for a new MM plate reader; interest in a purchasing a used or refurbished MM plate reader instead of a new reader; customer experience of MM plate reader vendors with respect to dependability, responsiveness and interactive approach; feedback given to plate reader vendors looking to retain/attract respondent’s custom, loyalty and interest in the future.
