Is there a listing of functions (such as 'trapz') to use in SimBiology explorer?

I am looking to generate some standard PK parameters from the simulation runs (AUC, Tmax, Cmax etc).
Is there a listing of functions somewhere that I can incorporate into the explorer such as 'trapz'?

Hi Andrew,
You could use the following:
Cmax: max(Central.Drug_Central)
Tmax: time(Central.Drug_Central == max(Central.Drug_Central))
Tend: time(end)
AUC0-last: trapz(time,Central.Drug_Central)
Other quantities (half-life, C0, AUC0-inf, CL etc) require extrapolation and regressions, which is what sbionca takes care of for you. More definitions of the NCA parameters are here.
You could also turn your simulation results into a table and pass that onto sbionca. This is somewhat easier said then done. I have some code that you download here, see the function 'CreateTableSimdata' in the NCA folder of the download.
Let me know if you have further questions.

This looks great. Is it possible to build the data table creation and sbionca command into a custom task?
