Connecting with our scientific ancestors through manual statistical calculations

May 26, 2012 at 12:58 pm Leave a comment

In today’s modern laboratory, there are steps in data analysis that we often take for granted. For example, have you ever seen a graphical representation of scientific data that didn’t include error bars or standard deviations of the mean? Do you know how they were calculated? Decades ago, before the widespread use of computers, (yes…those days actually existed), scientists had to perform these calculations by hand! Can you imagine?!? Well, in order to connect with our ancestors of not too long ago, Bio-Rad Laboratories QC Division has prepared a short video on how to manually prepare a standard deviation of the mean. Betcha can’t figure it out by yourself without watching the video!
