Designed Experiments for Assay Optimization (DEAO), 2 days, (1.6 CEU's, In-House Only)
Customized DOE applications for the assay industry
Optimize your Assay
In this specialty class you will explore the use of fractional factorial designs for the screening and characterization of products or processes. You’ll also discover how to achieve maximum performance via response surface designs, mixture designs, and multiple response optimization. Practice applying all of these DOE tools while working through cases involving assay contaminants, assay optimization, PCR optimization, and more.
In the Designed Experiments for Assay Optimization (DEAO) workshop, learn how to use DOE to develop new analytical procedures or to improve the precision and accuracy of existing techniques. In just 2 days you will get an overview of the best DOE techniques available, while working through case studies that come directly from this field.
Stat-Ease's DOE experts are committed to helping you learn and are happy to provide you with individualized guidance and support after class to help you get started on your next project—at no extra cost!
For supplemental reading on the DOE topics covered in DEAO, two fun and easy-to-read books, DOE Simplified and RSM Simplified, authored by Mark Anderson and Pat Whitcomb, are available for purchase.
The DEAO workshop provides a broad survey of the three major types of DOE designs—factorials, response surfaces, and mixtures. After completing the course you may want to further your education by attending one or more of Stat-Ease's core courses (EDME, RSM, MIX).
Practice Makes Perfect
Use Design-Expert® software to practice designing and analyzing experiments throughout the workshop. The software provides easy-to-use graphical tools to find key variables and view results. You will be given a path to all simulation and data files used in class, which are posted to a special Internet site where you can also link to a free fully-functional, but time-limited, copy of Design-Expert software for use after class.
"A more balanced presentation of the practical
and theoretical aspects of DOE would be hard
Ed Warner, Merck & Company
Math skills, knowledge of basic statistics,
and exposure to simple comparative experiments (e.g. two-sample t-test) are recommended. If you aren't ready for the Designed Experiments for Assay Optimization workshop,
take the online PreDOE course first (a $95 value you get for free! It takes 3-6 hours to complete. You can work at your own
pace). Assess your abilities by first taking the free self-assessment
questionnaire—which is available as a pre-test within the PreDOE course—at www.statease.net.
Before attending class, please go through the One-Factor Tutorial, and then look at the One-Factor Self-Study presentation. You will find links to both below.
