Mass spectrometry is one of today's most widely-used laboratory techniques and supports important applications is many areas of analysis. Despite the many advances these techniques have seen in recent decades, mass spectrometry continues to grow as analytical requirements increase and new applications are developed.



Mass Spectrometry 2015 presents the findings of a new global study of mass spectrometry that profiled the laboratory use of this technique across more than 47 research and industrial sectors. This study, which evaluated end-users' current practices and three-year plans, investigated their own estimates of the growth in their use of this technique, the competitive positions of global system suppliers; applications, ionisation methods; MS systems configurations; fragmentation methods; software; sample types; sample preparation techniques; the study of biomarkers using MS; biomarker disease areas; purpose of disease biomarkers studies; disease biomarker molecular types; biomarker clinical utilities; end-user per sample analytical costs and monthly throughput of study samples. This involved the participation of 778 experienced end-users across 60 countries. This study profiled end-user's current practices, developments, trends and future plans over the next three years, as well as growth and opportunities across key sectors of these markets.
