Minor change to avoid buffer overrun warning with Sophos anti-virus.
Major new release of the Analyse-it Standard edition.
Minor update, no bug fixes.
Minor fix for blank legend names on latest Excel 2007/2010 service packs
Minor update to fix an issue on start-up with Excel 2010 with Service Pack 1 and the Office File Validation add-in.
Fixed CUSUM linearity test on Passing-Bablok
Fixed significance test on lack of fit for non-linear model on Linearity
Compatible with Excel 2010 (32-bit only)
Fixed occasional random crashes for users of Excel 2007.
Added Getting Started tutorial.
True Excel 2007 interface, with quick access to tests and tools.
Existing users are encouraged to update to v2.
Made Kappa test available to the General statistics module. Added an option to omit confidence intervals on comparative box-plots, useful when the sample size is small and box plots appear 'inside-out'.
Changed Passing-Bablok method conversion (regression) algorithm to handle ties in Y.
Modified plotting of ROC curves slightly so the end of the curve is always joined to (1,1)
Office XP compatible
Improved license system and installer. Existing users upgrading to version 1.60 or later must request a license key (see below).
Added linearity protocol. No documentation is included for this procedure as yet, but an example called "Linearity.xls" is included in the "Analyse-it\System\Examples" folder. If you have any questions please contact us.
Changed linear regression prediction intervals to use t-distribution instead of F-distribution. Warning: the new t-distribution implementation yields narrower prediction intervals compared with the F-distribution.
Added "no intercept in model" to linear regression allowing fitted regression line to be forced through 0 (a.k.a. zero forcing).
Corrected problem where confidence level was not shown on linear regression. Confidence intervals were correct, but confidence level was always shown as 95% instead of chosen level.
Fixed bug in 2-run precision analysis when comparing within-run observed precision against precision claim.
Modified Deming regression residual plot to use standardized residuals instead of absolute residuals to allow easier spotting of outliers (use standard +/- 4 SD rule).
Added 'Linear method comparison' procedure -- basically linear regression modified to be better suited for method comparison studies (p-value tests slope against a hypothesis of 1).
Fixed bug in non-parametric reference intervals, where upper confidence level was reported even though too few samples (less than 119 samples).
Made Analyse-it Office/Excel 2000 compliant. Also fixed new problems introduced by Microsoft Office/Excel 97 service packs.
Improved ROC analysis, with tables showing sensitivity/ specificity/predictive-values for all possible decision-thresholds of each diagnostic test.
Improved linear regression algorithm to produce more accurate results when dependant variables are highly co-linear (now results are more accurate than Minitab!)
Modified precision plot, and fixed bug in the %difference plot of bias plots.
Modified ROC analysis to automatically decide whether higher or lower diagnostic results indicate normal or abnormal.
Added residual plots to Deming and Passing-Bablok method comparison procedures.
