anova.gif (37408 bytes) Among the methods for inter-well comparisons are the parametric analysis of variance ANOVA as shown here, as well as Kruskal-Wallis and Wilcoxon non-parametric comparisons.
cusum.gif (23442 bytes) ChemStat include a powerful and highly customizable Shewhart-CUSUM control chart, for both inter-well and intra-well comparisons.
multprm.gif (24636 bytes) Shown here is the multiple parameter time-series plot.  Graph any combination of parameters for a single well.
multwell.gif (19459 bytes) Shown here is a multiple well time series plot.  Graph any combination of wells for a selected parameters.  ChemStat spaces the date axis proportional to the actual date value of the sample.  ChemStat also plots multiple concentrations for a single date.
predlmt.gif (20234 bytes) New:  ChemStat 2.0 includes improved prediction limits. Verification resampling is supported by allowing you to vary the number of samples for each well compared to the prediction limit.  Parametric prediction limit calculations can follow USEPA (1989), Gibbons (1987) one-sided, or Gibbons (1987) two-sided algorithms.
windows.gif (24661 bytes) Here is another view of ChemStat showing Skewness calculations, probability plot, and the Workbook.
workbook.gif (31880 bytes) The Workbook acts as a repository for all your reports and graphs.  Workbook items are saved with your data, and will not change as you apply transformation to the data set.  When you have completed your statistical analysis, you can print the entire workbook, or selected items.
outlier.gif (31454 bytes) ChemStat 2.1 adds the ability to easily exclude individual samples from statistical analyses, and then add them back at a later date.  This is useful for removing statistical outliers, or reducing the size of the data set for an individual well or background wells.
methodtreescreen.GIF (34641 bytes) New: ChemStat 5.0 adds the Method Selector Tree.  The method selector tree simplifies the selection of appropriate statistical methods.  Methods are grouped into a logical hierarchy.  Double-click a method to run the test.
