A Cost Effective Solution for the Toxicology Lab

ToxCalc™ v5.0 is a complete statistical package specifically designed for environmental toxicity testing. ToxCalc was developed by Tidepool Scientific Software, the publishers of the new Comprehensive Environmental Toxicity Information System™, known as CETIS. Since ToxCalc is a Microsoft® Excel™ add-in, it provides you with all the flexibility and utility you expect from the world's most popular spreadsheet.

ToxCalc determines virtually all required toxicity indices using U.S. EPA approved parametric and non-parametric statistical methods. ToxCalc incorporates extensive built-in error checking and alerts the user of data entry errors or statistical incompatibility. Entered data can also be checked for accuracy using a system of double entry. The program supports unlimited treatment levels, unlimited replicates, and up to two user specified controls.
