The average budget for lab products is $ in 2012, compared to $ in 2011. Details on the seven product categories and subcategories within those categories are provided in the body of the research.
Researchers indicate the product categories that their labs purchased or expect to purchase in the 2011-2013 period. Typically, they indicate the highest values in 2012, probably because of their greater familiarity with the current year. Chemicals and general lab supplies garner the highest values; life science reagents and kits the lowest. (Other categories covered are instruments, equipment, glassware, and plasticware).
For service and repair of instruments and equipment, manufacturer service contracts garner the highest revenue, even though in-house service departments and do-it-yourself service are also widely used. The latter appear to be much more cost-effective.
