API DataDirect

Eliminate the #1 cause of proficiency testing failures by uploading your results to API using your LIS.

API DataDirect


Manual entry of proficiency testing results is a time-consuming process and prone to errors. DataDirect utilizes the ability of your LIS to run a report and create a data file which is then uploaded onto API’s website. This process removes the need for manual entry, saves time, and eliminates the number one cause of proficiency testing failures, clerical errors!



The process is simple

Proficiency Testing Reporting Just Got Easier!

Proficiency testing becomes truly accurate, immediate, and paperless. Using their own laboratory information system (LIS) or middleware, laboratories may now transmit proficiency testing results directly to the American Proficiency Institute (API), a process that revolutionizes external quality control for clinical laboratories.
