PKCompartment object

Used by PKModelDesign to create SimBiology model


The PKCompartment object is used by the PKModelDesign object to construct a SimBiology® model for pharmacokinetic modeling. PKCompartment holds the following information:

  • Name of the compartment

  • Dosing type

  • Elimination type

  • Whether the drug concentration in this compartment is reported

The PKCompartment class is a subclass of the hgsetget class which is a subclass of the handle class. For more information on the inherited methods, see hgsetget, and handle.
