Planning the Ideal Research Conference
September 4, 2018 -- Research conferences are an important opportunity for scientists to network and build their careers. For vendors, these events are a chance to learn about competitors and establish connections with potential customers. However, the major organizers of annual events and conferences are often professional societies, hoping to provide their members with cutting-edge information, opportunities for professional advancement, and the ability to connect with others in the same area of science.  Discuss
Life Scientists Online – Connecting, Influencing, Sharing.
June 12, 2018 -- As generations pass by and new forms of communication develop, different preferences for social interaction are beginning to dominate. This has led to new trends in how scientists connect with brand executives, and will continue to affect how major organizations approach the life science market.  Discuss
Emerging Trends in Communicating with Vendors
June 7, 2018 -- Significant changes are occurring in the life science market for consumers. Many are turning to digital sources for product information. The integrations of analytical instruments and sensors that monitor performance is becoming increasingly common in life science research laboratories. Multiple studies have shown that consumer engagement with visual content is significantly longer than with text and is more readily sharable than text-based marketing.  Discuss
Regulatory Changes in China
May 29, 2018 -- According to China’s FDA (CFDA), the State Council issued two five-year plans on food and drug safety earlier this year that will impact analytical instrument manufacturers. According to the plan, 97% of agricultural products are required to meet quality standards by 2020. The plan on drug safety states that pharmaceutical drug quality is to be improved, calling for the approval of 289 generic drugs, as well as the reform of 3,050 national drug standards and 500 medical equipment standards by 2020. Read on to find out how these changes will impact instrument makers and more.  Discuss
Spotlight on the Emerging Market in China
March 21, 2018 -- Upon studying the analytical and life science instrument market in China, along with life science lab budgets, The Science Advisory Board has found that Asian markets are growing faster than scientific markets in the US and Europe. China in particular is of great interest because of the size and growth of their nearly $6 billion market.  Discuss
The Enduring Power of Branding in the Antibody Market
March 21, 2018 -- Here at The Science Advisory Board we recognize the growing market for research antibodies. One of the first questions we asked our members was “When thinking about commercially available antibodies, which brands come to mind?” We received hundreds of brands, but about 20 were the most frequent in our “mindshare” results.  Discuss
Life Science Marketing: Change and Constancy
March 21, 2018 -- At The Science Advisory Board we surveyed over 1,000 of our members to better understand their thoughts and opinions about current life science marketing techniques. This study will discuss some of our findings related to influencer marketing, sponsored content and experiential marketing. Use this post as a resource to learn more about how marketing influences your lab purchases as well as insight on your peers attitudes towards such tactics.  Discuss
