The NAPT Intra Wizard allows you to plan, manage and report on your internal Intralaboratory Comparisons (Intra).
- Login to the Customer Portal
- Navigate in the side bar to Intra
The Intra Manager page is broken up into three sections.
Pending Development: These are Intras that have been purchased and are ready to be started.
In-Progress: These are Intras that are currently In-Progress. This would include waiting to set participant schedule, submit data, run analysis or run reports.
Completed Intras: These are Intras that are complete. You can still run reports but no other action can be taken.
- Click on Begin Process to start the Wizard
- Each Wizard step will have a Next button in the lower right corner to continue the Wizard.
Kit & Artifacts
The first few steps of the wizard is where you define the name of your Kit, associate Artifacts to the kit and supply the Measured Values (Set Points) you are testing.
Step 1: Review Items Needed
The first step reviews all items you need to run the wizard. You should not start the wizard unless you have all items and are prepared to finish the wizard.
Step 2: Provide Kit Name
In this step, provide a name for your Kit. This is a required field and must be filled out. The description of the Kit allows you to provide additional information about the Kit.
If you wish, you may accept the defaults.
Step 3: Add Artifact to Kit
In this step, you enter the Artifact(s) to be used within the Kit. You must supply at least one Artifact. You can enter up to three Artifacts.
The Manufacturer and Model are required fields. Once you have added at least one Artifact, you may continue.
Step 4: Add Measured Values to Kit
In this step, you enter the Measured Values (Set Points) that will be used within the Intra. These are the testing points your participants will report on.
You must enter at a minimum one Measured Value. You can enter up to fifteen.
All fields are required.
|Order||The order in which the Measured Value (MV) will appear.|
|Discipline||The related Discipline of the MV|
|Nominal Value||The default / expected value of the MV|
|Description||Additional details about the MV|
|Resolution||The resolution is the number of 0's right of the decimal point. For example:|
0.01 would have a resolution of 2
0.0001 would have a resolution of 4
|Unit of Measure||The unit of the MV|
Step 5: Scheme Options
In this step, you will enter the options of the Scheme Design. All fields are required.

Step 6: Participants
In this step, you will define who the participants of your Intra will be. You need a minimum of three (3) participants in order to complete an Intra.
There are two options by which to add a participant.
