Ex Pharm - Software

Virtual Pharmacology - Animal Simulator - Computer Assisted Learning (CAL) - Software 



For Details Click Here 

What is Ex Pharm (Experimental Pharmacology) - Series 

This is the computer assisted learning (CAL) software, containing various programs which simulate animal experiments in pharmacology. The modules in the software can be used to demonstrate effect of drugs on different animals systems. The software is being used and trusted by pharmacologists from many years. The package is user friendly, highly interactive and full of animated sequences which make simulation appear realistic. The current version of Ex-Pharm (Experimental Pharmacology) - Series Software consists of following computer simulated experiments:
