Consider this sentence:

In this experiment, we just want to corroborate our previous results.

If we want to emphasize that we want to corroborate the results as a whole (e.g., if one or two instances are rejected among 1000 instances, it is still corroborated), can we change it to this:

In this experiment, we just want to corroborate our previous results in general.

If not, what else can be used?

"corroborate" refers to something particular, so I don't think "corroborate...in general" is a good combination. You are qualifying what you mean by "corroborate".

The purpose of this experiment is to corroborate the results of the previous experiment with results that are substantially the same.

"substantially the same" indicates that minor differences will be overlooked as insignificant.
