A Recent Participant

"I found the survey easy to follow and very worthwhile completing, for the time invested. It allowed me to benchmark our capability against a wide range of other users and informed me of general trends in the industry. The survey results were also of value to me personally (continuing professional development)" James Riches, Analytical Chemistry, DSTL, UK
 
Real World
Participants in Salient Surveys are encouraged to give their candid opinions on how current techniques and methods are meeting their needs, or not. As such, these findings provide ‘real world’ views from the end-user's perspective.
 

Laboratory Scientists
and Clinicians

Salient Surveys are completed by global groups of specialist laboratory scientists and clinicians, who share their knowledge and experience. Participants receive a free report of the survey data, for their own use.

 
Salient Forum
Through this website, laboratory scientists and clinicians can join
one or more specialist groups, which offer opportunities to discuss areas of interest directly, with other specialists in their field. With permission, we are happy to pass on enquiries from survey participants, to others in their field.
