You can now select multiple columns of sample identifiers and carry out the independent test for each of the sample identifiers in one shot.

This feature is accessible under the Parametric tests menu.

 

* Ternary graphs with groups (available in all XLSTAT solutions)

Color observation points within your Ternary plot based on the group they belong to. Use the new field of the Ternary dialog box, named Groups, for this purpose. You can find it in the Visualizing data menu.

Access this feature from the Method Validation menu.

 

* 4 or 5 parameter logistic regression (available in XLSTAT Life Sciences and Premium)

Powerful and faster computations are achieved due to the improvement of the Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm.

This feature is available in the Dose effect analysis menu.

 

* STATIS / Free sorting (available in XLSTAT Sensory and Premium)

A chart has been added to project each object of each configuration on the axes determined by STATIS. In a sensory data analysis, this graph helps you evaluate, for a given product, how close the assessors are to each other and which ones stand out.

Convenient arrows now allow you to quickly move up and down any XLSTAT report sheet.
