The Dose Estimate software was created to aid cytogeneticists to apply the statistical methods, recommended in the cytogenetic biodosimetry manual (IAEA, 2011), to fit calibration curves and calculate doses with cytogenetic data. A number of tools are included in the package:
All actions carried out in a Dose Estimate session are stored on a 'Case Report' which can be saved, and fitted curves can be stored within the programme registry for ease of access later on. The software currently only runs on Windows.
Laboratories or individuals interested in obtaining an evaluation copy of the software should contact us.
