Creating Statistical Tools for Customers
There are widely used formulas, such as Abbott's formula, for
removing the effect of background or natural response from
Dose-response curves. There are also adjustments for variable
amounts of exposure to a treated substrate or stimulus. This
presentation will review methods to remove these uncertainties from
estimates of dose-response curves, and will present formulas to
calculate the effects on the variance of response.
