PDx-Pop 3.0 (the graphical interface software that integrates NONMEM with statistical, graphical and model evalutation tools) was shipped to all current PDx-Pop licensees during February 2008.

New features available in PDx-Pop version 3.0:

  1. Windows Vista compatibility.
  2. Linux Version (tested on Ubuntu and Redhat).
  3. Mac OS X version (tested on Tiger).
  4. A new real time plotting feature has been added that can plot the objective function value as a function of the iteration number to allow the user to monitor the progress of the run graphically.
  5. A new data checkout plotting system with additional capability that can use either R or S-Plus has been added to supplement the current data checkout using Microsoft Excel.*
  6. New automated plots for individual parameter estimates (QQ-plots, QQ-log plots, and histograms of parameters).
  7. New automated plots for individual eta estimates (pairs plots, QQ-Plots and histograms of etas).
  8. To accommodate security measures for our clients, PDx-Pop implements a new, more user-friendly licensing mechanism that does not require administrative user privileges.
  9. Installation is simplified and no longer requires the long serial number.

* Integration of PDx-Pop with R (for statistics and graphics) and xpose4 was introduced in PDx-Pop version 2.2.

30 day trial versions (with all features fully functional) are available for evaluation.
