    Welcome to the forum.

    See my changes above. It wouldn't work as a standalone sentence. It could appear after a semi-colon.

    This experiment is very detailed; hence its use in this study.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You could create a context where it could be seen as a complete sentence, but it would require extra context as it clearly follows something else:

    Jim: The new assessment formula is an improvement on the old.
    Joan: Hence its use in this study.
