How to Quickly Gather Data for Hypothesis Testing

One of the first things young budding scientists learn is the scientific method. The simplified version is: ask a question, propose a hypothesis, perform hypothesis testing, and view the results.  Now, there is of course more to the scientific method than this, as those young budding scientists who grew up to become actual real life scientists quickly learned. Hypothesis testing is still a vital component, however, and one that should not be ignored or rushed. If you want to acquire data for your hypothesis testing quickly and efficiently, here are some tips courtesy of ToxPlanet. ToxPlanet wholeheartedly supports scientific advancement at every stage!

Use Green Screen

Relatively recent in the science world, Green Screen is an incredibly helpful tool for modern researchers. Green Screen is a method of Chemical Hazard Assessment that will help you determine which chemicals are hazardous and which are safer. It is freely available and will help improve the safety and quality of your research. Using Green Screen, you can find alternative chemicals to use, reducing the risk of exposure for you and your team.

Search by CAS Number

It is not always easy to find chemical information based on its name. Most chemicals have synonyms in addition to their “standard” name. Sometimes, the chemical literature that you need is difficult to find because you’re not using the correct synonym. In addition, you run into problems with foreign languages. A vital piece of research may be hidden from you because the literature is in another language. Unless you understand the translation for every chemical in every language, you’ll be searching for a long time! Using a CAS number eliminates this frustration. A CAS number is like a universal language: every chemical is assigned one, no matter the synonym or language! Search for a chemical by number, and all the information on that chemical becomes available in one place. Such a simpler system!

Filter Your Results

One of the problems that arises from using a traditional free public search engine is that you end up with a lot of irrelevant information. You need to enter your search using exact terms in order to find what you’re looking for. Trust us when we say that your hypothesis testing does not have time for that! Additionally, you run into problems like link rot and content drift, which aggravate your search efforts further. Instead, use a credited and comprehensive chemical database. The best databases will have filters which will allow you to narrow your searches more easily. You won’t have to spend a frustratingly long time wading through unnecessary content, and can get right to the good stuff.

Now, you may be wondering if there is one place where you can put all these tips into practice. And wouldn’t you know it, there is! ToxPlanet has a huge database that we constantly update with all the latest and relevant chemical information. We search using the CAS number and provide filters for your convenience. You’ll be surprised at how quickly you finish your hypothesis testing after you switch to us! If you want to try out ToxPlanet, then watch a video explaining how we are different from the other options. If you’d like a little more of an up close and personal experience, you can also request a free two week trial! So from the first proposed theory and on through the hypothesis testing, trust ToxPlanet to improve the quality of your research!
