Bioassay, Advanced Statistics

Bioassay: It is an abbreviation of biological assay, which in its classical form includes an experiment conducted on biological material to determine relative potency of test and standard preparations. Recently though, the term has been used in a more common sense, to denote any experiment in which responses to various doses of the externally applied agents are observed in animals and the biological system. See also calibration and probity analysis.
