The U.S. laboratory supply market size

Laboratories require a variety of equipment and instruments to run tests and research and can be found in research labs, educational labs, diagnostic testing in medical labs, quality assurance, research and development, and manufacturing. The use of laboratory supplies allows faster analyses that add value to the laboratory itself by increasing the capacity of the instrument and allow performing more tests every day. The faster methods may even allow testing to be consolidated onto fewer instruments that can reduce consumables, maintenance, requirements for regulatory documentation, and overall costs.

Technology trends are also increasing laboratory capabilities. Innovative technology and methods allow scientists and laboratory technicians to work more efficiently and accurately than ever before. Smart technology, automation, miniaturization, and artificial intelligence are becoming real-world, streamlining life in the lab. Simultaneously the pressure to deliver results quickly is also increasing. Hence, laboratories must be fast and agile. For laboratory managers, the best way to increase efficiency is to improve the purchasing process. Significantly, the lab suppliers are also trying to make simpler product selection and order processes.

Technological advancements in lab equipment are also driving the market. Modern laboratory instruments have interfaces that make their operation easy for users. BrandTech Scientific, Inc. offers an electronic pipette with touch screen operation and automatic tip ejection. It has a screen that operates like smartphones, allowing users to swipe and access available functions.
