Features and Benefits

API® strips give accurate identifications based on extensive databases and are standardized, easy-to-use test systems. The kits include strips that contain up to 20 miniature biochemical tests. All are quick, safe and easy to perform.
 
Economical to run and user-friendly, API strips have a long shelf life, enabling every laboratory to keep the test kits on hand.
 
APIweb is a software product containing all of the API databases for a reliable automated interpretation of API strip results – when used on any compatible PC workstation.
 
APIweb is rapid and easy to use – key in the biochemical or numerical profile of the strip to obtain the organism identification. The software provides a detailed report that is displayed on the screen and can be printed.
