Add-ons & Analytical methods

Acquire background information on the add-on concept and learn how to use the analytical methods provided by PLA 3.0 add-ons.

Working with add-ons

PLA 3.0 add-ons allow you to easily extend your work environment with new features. They broadly correspond to the following areas: Analyzing data, acquiring data, and supporting add-ons.

Analyzing data

PLA 3.0 supports a wide variety of methods for biostatistical analysis. To access a method, activate the respective add-on in your PLA 3.0 system, and start to develop your assay using the provided document types.

The following commercial off-the-shelf add-ons provide analytical methods:

Biological Assay Package: The Biological Assay Package add-on organizes data, processes, and results in documents. It provides various document types that broadly correspond to the functional areas of assay documents, advanced calculations, and supporting documents. Read more...

Dose-Response Analysis Package: The Dose-Response Analysis Package provides various biostatistical methods for immunoassays, ELISA, and more. It supports you in investigating equivalence for calibration curves, provides enhanced data processing, and options for subgroup analysis. Read more...

Control Chart Package (Technical Preview): The Control Chart Package allows sophisticated statistical process control by plotting Shewhart I-Charts as recommended in the USP <1010> and also provides a set of visualization options to fine-tune your statistical process control mechanisms.
