Some Statistics about the Users of TeleSpec

Distribution of TeleSpec users

The distribution of users (take a look at Selected Users) shows that TeleSpec is mainly used at universities and research institutes of the chemical and pharmaceutical industry as well as by spectrometer manufacturers all over the world has been observed.

Typical governmental institutions that are accessing TeleSpec are the German Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung, and several Federal Offices of Criminal Investigation as well as Fraunhofer- and Max-Planck-Institutes. Even in France the Centre National de Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) and the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research of South-Africa, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) und National Cancer Institute (NCI) der National Institutes of Health (NIH) of the United States.



TeleSpec users in Europe and adjoining regions (the German part is not shown in scale)

Of course the largest part of TeleSpec users originate from Germany. The number of accesses from Germany is about equal to the accesses from the rest of the world.

While the usage of TeleSpec in Europe is mainly restricted to countries of the European Union, more and more accesses from Russia, Poland, Slovenia and Estonia could be observed. Users outside of Europe mainly originate from the United States, that takes about one third of the accesses to TeleSpec. A few regular users come from the central and south american region.

The distribution of TeleSpec users demonstrates the manifold use of infrared spectroscopy in chemical analysis as well as the high interest of quite different audiences in modern computational methods. In discussions with scientists on conferences where TeleSpec is regulary presented it becomes clear, that there exists an extensive demand on those and similar tools.
