CDD Vault Update: Say Hello to the New API

For those of you that have been eagerly awaiting a way to connect your CDD data repository to other applications— the beta version of the API is here for your testing and coding pleasure! In addition to the Application Programming Interface, we’ve also updated the search results display and the handling of units of measurement.

Details by Default

When searching, the results will now display all batch and replicate readouts on separate table rows by default.
