experimental

emanating from or pertaining to experiment.

experimental animals
animals kept expressly for the purposes of conducting experiments on them. Called also laboratory animals.
experimental design
the method of allocating experimental units to treatment groups in an experiment; many complicated and sophisticated designs are available, e.g. balanced, unbalanced, crossover, factorial, randomized, non-random, split-plot.
experimental epidemiology
the study of changes effected in populations by changes made in the factors affecting their performance, behavior or health.
experimental model
experiment carried out using a model of a real system which contains some of the risk factors which apply in the real state; the model is a simplification of real life.
experimental study
a study in which all of the risk factors are under the direct control of the investigator.
