Abstract: Innovation is not what innovators do; it is what customers or clients adopt. Considering the example of e-HTPX, a project that is producing a protein crystallography interface allowing users to remotely: plan, control and direct their experiments. Using a framework of supply and demand side diffusion of innovation, this paper will describe a process of cognitive mapping a series of interviews with protein crystallographers. Analysis of the data from these interviews was used to identify the factors of adoption for this service by pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, and how these findings could create a more usable product.
