Dear Fellow Researcher,

Thank you for agreeing to participate in this questionnaire. The answers to these
questions will help a great deal in developing new software for the analysis of long-term
experimental results.

Please feel free to answer as fully as you like. The completed questionnaire can be
emailed to questionnaire@samuraiscientific.cjb.net, or mailed to Samurai Scientific,
6285 Persse Road, LaFayette, NY 13084.


   1. Are you a Principle Investigator, Postdoctoral Researcher, Research Assistant,
      Technician or Graduate Student?

       ........................................................................................................................

   2. What software have you used to analyze (not capture) experimental results? (E.g.
      Microsoft Excel)

       ........................................................................................................................

   3. If you have ever performed analysis of experimental results involving multiple
      timepoints? (Such as, for example, daily measurements for 2 weeks, or minute by
      minute samples for an hour.) How many timepoints are typically involved?

       ........................................................................................................................

   4. How many individual experiments (e.g. mice) are typically analyzed?

       ........................................................................................................................

   5. Would you say that to some degree the ability or willingness to perform analysis
      of multiple timepoints involving many samples is limited by the manpower and
      time required to analyse the data?

       ........................................................................................................................

   6. Would a software package capable of analyzing multiple parameters for hundreds
      of experiments over time assist in your research?

       ........................................................................................................................
7. What company/companies supplies your hardware and/or software for data
   capture?

   ........................................................................................................................

8. Would you work with a 3rd-party software company, or prefer to work with your
   existing equipment supplier? Why?

   ........................................................................................................................
   ........................................................................................................................
   ........................................................................................................................

9. Would you be interested in purchasing custom-created software for your specific
   needs or experimental designs?

   ........................................................................................................................

10. Would you be interested in paying a 3rd-party software company to perform rapid,
    confidential analysis of your data off-site (in a manner similar perhaps to DNA
    sequencing or oligo production)? What specific concerns would you have about
    doing this?

   ........................................................................................................................
   ........................................................................................................................
   ........................................................................................................................
   ........................................................................................................................

11. Are there any other comments or suggestions you would like to make regarding
    this idea?

   Thank-you very much for your assistance!
