ToxRat is a validated, GLP-compliant software for statistical evaluation of bioassays according to international guidelines (OECD, ISO, IOBC, OCSPP).
Your interface between ecotoxicological practice and statistics.
You will save time in routine evaluations and you can perform correct statistical evaluation of biotests even as a non-statistician.
Biotest specific data templates
ToxRat knows your biotest. From “A“ for Algae Growth Inhibition Test (OECD 201) to “V“ for Vegetative Vigour Test (NTP, OECD 208).
This is why you’ll find the common terms for the variables measured already waiting for you when you enter your data: “cell number“, “offspring number“, “weight“, “emerged“ etc. - specific to each biotest. Even the measurement intervals have been pre-set in accordance with the corresponding guideline. You transfer your measurement results directly into the appropriate evaluation templates. Biotests
Automatical evaluation according to guidelines (OECD, ISO, IOBC, OCSPP)
ToxRat also knows the intended endpoints of your biotest: Therefore, you do not need to calculate variables such as yields or growth rates yourself, and you do not need to manually determine statistical endpoints such as ECx, NOEC or LID. ToxRat will take care of this as a " batch job" with just one button click. This way you will get from the raw data to a finished report in just a few steps. Including a validity check, of course. RUN
You get expert knowledge: Your raw data will be checked (pre-tests for variance homogeneity, normal distribution, monotonicity) and depending on the result, a suitable method for NOEC determination will be suggested, which will definitely lead to correct results. You can count on this. And if there are several options: You can follow the expert suggestion. But you do not have to. Statistics
You will receive a comprehensive report with figures and tables as an rtf or pdf file. On the cover sheet you will find information about the guideline and the raw data file, test substance, evaluation date, identifier of the PC used (optional), etc. You can accept the finished formatting or edit it in a word processing program. Just as you like. View sample report OECD201 and OECD 202.
Validation, GLP-compliance and IT-security
You do not need a database program. The data entry templates are Excel-based, but are processed exclusively within ToxRat.
