Survey: What are the biggest bottlenecks in NGS?

Survey: What are the biggest bottlenecks in NGS?

Posted by Mads Madsen

QIAGEN has kindly sponsored a survey of 924 biomedical researchers from academia, government laboratories, and biotechnology companies, which has resulted in several interesting key findings, like the one below.

In your opinion, what’s the SINGLE BIGGEST barrier in achieving your research goals, other than possible funding issues (select only one)?% respondents / n=924

% respondents / n=911 Sample access and data analysis are overwhelmingly the two biggest barriers to survey participants achieving their research goals (total ~50%). Workflow complexity and regulatory constraints are close seconds (total ~25%). **Two of the biggest concerns in the “other” category are lack of personnel, as well as lack of time to complete research projects. The concern regarding personnel is likely due to issues involving financing, as well as finding people to hire who have appropriate expertise in the field. Other major concerns include: problems with bureaucracy, management, administrative policies that hold research back, lack of appropriate collaborators to assist with research, and the complexity of research projects being undertaken.
