Presentation of eeFit

The program eeFit is an Excel add-in designed to fit Hill models to experimental dose-response data using non-linear least-squares regression by means of the Solver add-in. It provides most features of commercial software but is simpler to operate because of its advanced user interface and its complete integration within Excel.
Consult the following paper for a detailed description :
Vivaudou M (2019) eeFit : A Microsoft Excel-embedded program for interactive analysis and fitting of experimental dose-response data. BioTechniques. 66:186-93. doi : 10.2144/btn-2018-0136.



Requirements

The add-in eeFit is restricted to computers running Windows 7 or later versions. It has been tested with Microsoft Excel 2007, 2010, 2013, and 2016. Only the 32-bit versions were tested and are recommended here because 64-bit versions are not compatible with many commonly-used ActiveX controls. eeFit requires the Solver add-in and several DLL files which are all bundled with Microsoft Office.

Installation

A package is provided which includes a script for automated installation of the add-in with all associated resource files. All files are in compressed file eefit_pub_*.zip. Detailed instructions are in file ReadMe_eeFit.txt.

References

If any results obtained with the eeFit program are published, whatever the means of publication, particularly in the scientific literature, the program should be referenced by citing the following paper :
