In clinical, field or laboratory longitudinal studies, sequential samples may need to be pooled in proportion to the time interval between sampling time points. For instance, pooling of samples in this manner provides an integration of the measurand with time over the course of the study, using analysis of a single sample. This delivers time and cost savings when compared to analysis of all the serial samples followed by area-under the curve analysis in silico. In practice the time intervals between serial samples may not be exactly the same, and there may be missing samples. The Sample Pooling Calculator (SPoC) helps with the preparation of the single pooled sample. It calculates the volume of each sample to add to the pooled sample, based on the time interval between consecutive samples. The software is written in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) in Excel.

Abstract

In clinical, field or laboratory longitudinal studies, sequential samples may need to be pooled in proportion to the time interval between sampling time points. For instance, pooling of samples in this manner provides an integration of the measurand with time over the course of the study, using analysis of a single sample. This delivers time and cost savings when compared to analysis of all the serial samples followed by area-under the curve analysis in silico. In practice the time intervals between serial samples may not be exactly the same, and there may be missing samples. The Sample Pooling Calculator (SPoC) helps with the preparation of the single pooled sample. It calculates the volume of each sample to add to the pooled sample, based on the time interval between consecutive samples. The software is written in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) in Excel. A manual PDF is provided. SPoC is made available under a BY NC ND Creative Commons Licence.
