Experimental design


To estimate effects, correlations or dependencies, you need a precise question and an accurate design.

 Therefore, we will guide you through the following topics:

  • What is the aim of your trial?
  • Which influences have to be considered or observed?
  • Which hypotheses have to be tested?
  • Which precision and power requirements do you have?
  • What are your capacities?

On this basis, we choose appropriate statistical model.


Together with you, we plan the necessary sample size and the experimental design:

  • definition of data and type of survey
  • creation of forms for data entry
  • calculation of optimal sample size
  • choice and construction of appropriate experimental design


For these tasks we also recommend the use of CADEMO, a software by BioMath.
