Data Connection Setup - Medtox

Credentials from Medtox to download result data files must be entered into DrugPak as part of this setup.  Contact your Medtox customer service representative and inform them that you want to initiate the setup of a New DrugPak API.  The customer service representative will submit the internal documentation to the appropriate division for initiating and implementing the new interface with DrugPak.  Inform your Medtox contact that DrugPak accepts the following format: RES Version 1.4 

Once Medtox has configured your account for downloading result data then Medtox will provide you with credentials to access that data, those credentials are entered into the Imports page of the Laboratory record in DrugPak.  The credentials normally include Host, Port, Username, Password and (possibly) Directory.

Medtox data may include cutoff values for both screen and confirmation testing.

Following the steps from the "Result Data Import Interface Configuration" article access the Import page of the Laboratory record that the Data Connection is to be set up in.

  1. Select "MedTox" in the Lab field
  2. Enter the communication credentials that were provided by Medtox (Host, Port, User Name, Password, Directory), then click the <Save> button.
  3. To begin having DrugPak look for data sent from the laboratory click the <Enable It Now> button.
