Free statistical analysis tools for all
Prism unveils a bespoke suite of free innovative, powerful and secure online statistical tools.Published January 2018
We're excited to unveil a bespoke suite of free innovative, powerful and secure online statistical tools available to use via our website.
Whether you are a scientist, engineer, formulator, spectroscopist, chemometrician or something else entirely, we hope that this range of valuable tools will assist with your day-to-day scientific and analytical work. And, even better, there's no download required!
”We’ve previously offered our own software tools as paid products, but we’ve now reached a stage where we’re keen to facilitate their widespread adoption, by making them freely available as online analysis tools. These easy-to-use tools will allow you to perform complex statistical analyses directly on our encrypted website. Why do this? Well, we see this as an opportunity to do something different and special; to help our valued existing clients, and to attract potential new customers,” explains our Managing Director Andrew Macpherson.
The tools, which you can access here, initially include:
Basic Statistics; allowing users to generate descriptive statistics and informative graphs directly in their internet browser. This tool includes histograms, boxplots, normality tests, one-sample t-tests and more statistical tools relevant to the scientific community.
PCA 3D Visualiser; allowing visitors to plot, visualise, filter and explore their multivariate data to better understand the relationships between a host of variables. This tool was primarily developed as a Principal Components Analysis visualisation tool, but it can be used with any set of three-dimensional coordinates.
Nested; a variance components analysis tool designed with regulatory requirements in mind, previously only available as a paid-for standalone application. Nested provides insight into which factors are causing variability in the users’ results and how this variation might be mitigated, relaying this via intuitive graphs and comprehensive metrics.
Scoping Design Builder; an interactive DoE tool, enabling users to construct their own scoping study. Scoping designs can be extremely valuable at the early stages of experimentation, allowing the scientists to verify whether more in-depth studies are likely to reveal the factors of interest. The web tool allows the user to download their own design in a number of convenient file formats.
“Prism have always been about demystifying statistics. Our core skills lie in training, consultancy and creating tailored software tools to meet your specific requirements. Consequently, we’ve created countless macros, scripts and programs to assist our clients over the years. Now we want to share these to enable everyone to easily gain understanding from their data,” says our Technical Director Paul Nelson.
We will be available to offer our expert support services and guidance to anyone wishing to use the tools in order to ensure you make the most of them. This support could be the delivery of a wide range of on-site and public training workshops, on-going assistance via our flexible consultancy packages, or even building customised versions of the online tools to meet your specific requirements. If you're ever faced with a seemingly impossible statistical problem, then Prism can help!
These free tools are the first in a number of online apps that we plan to release over the coming months. Together, these statistical tools will provide an innovative, online software platform designed specifically for the challenges faced in discovery, research and development, and manufacturing across various industries.
