User-friendly GUTS software
In 2018/2019, we have developed a
standalone, robust and user-friendly software for GUTS. This activity was funded
by Cefic-LRI, and more information about the project can be
The openGUTS software is aimed towards the application of
GUTS in environmental risk assessment. The software is able
to calibrate the reduced GUTS models (SD and IT) without the
user needing to supply starting values, and will produce
confidence intervals on fitted parameters as well as model
predictions (such as LCx,t and LPx multiplication factors
for exposure profiles).
This project now has its own dedicated website at http://openguts.info/.
The standalone as well as the Matlab version for the
software are available as free downloads.
For more advanced analyses, you will still have to use
another platform, such as the package in BYOM. Also, on the other software page, you will
find more GUTS implementations (including web-based and
standalone versions). A more extensive list is provided on
