Re: Statistics/mechanical testing biological tissue:

Question: How many samples are considered to be sufficient,
if testing one condition of a biological tissue?
For example:Understanding how bone tissue would
deform or creep under free-compression
load.
The DIN norm does recommend 7 samples, and requires
at least 3 samples for technical materials?
However, there are still no specification
for biological materials.

Although this a complicated issue, I hope to find
a REALISTIC samples number that may be considered
to sufficient in this case?

Regards,

Jamal
