CombiStats™ Training Course

European network of OMCLs

Strasbourg, France

Programme Overview

The CombiStatsTM software was developed at the EDQM to perform calculations according to Chapter 5.3 of the European Pharmacopoeia (5th Edition to 10th Edition). The primary objective of this training is to provide insights into the main functionalities of the CombiStats™ software, which will be illustrated with demonstrations of the tool. The programme will focus on the practical use of the software in a variety of situations. Each session will include examples and exercises.

The following sessions will be included:

  • An overview of classes of bio-assays and fundamental principles;
  • The general layout, selecting options and setting up templates;
  • Presentation of the different models, designs, dose-response curves and data transformations;
  • Syntax, responses and interpreting  of input and output;
  • A closer look at advanced options, importing and exporting of data.

This training course is easy to understand and follow. Staff will be on-hand to answer your questions and help resolve frequently encountered problems.

Draft Programme (subject to change)


Optional - Exercise Workshop

At no extra cost (9 October, afternoon)

This optional Exercise Workshop is particularly suitable for participants seeking guidance on the different possible ways of analysing their own data. Participants should send their practical examples to the EDQM at least two weeks before the start of the training. The data will be anonymised prior to sharing it with the participants.


Who should attend?

This training is only open to registered users of the software.

This training is for professionals from the pharmaceutical industry, regulatory agencies and academic institutions who are responsible for the analysis and interpretation of assay data but who have no fundamental training in statistics.

This training is for beginners. However, participants are expected to have some experience using the software and with biological data and the related statistical models (e.g. parallel line analysis).

Participants with a good command of the software and sound understanding of the related statistical models and underlying assumptions are invited to contact the EDQM statisticians via the HelpDesk for specific questions.
