The Scrazzl API is the easiest way for developers to access up-to-date life and health science product information. The Scrazzl database integrates product information from all CompareNetworks sites in one easy to use central database. Product details available include fields such as product ID, product name, catalogue ID, vendor name, description, unit, product URL, clonality, type, tags...etc.
Using the Scrazzl API requires the user to hold a valid API token issued specifically for the registered platform. To obtain a token for your platform, you can register your application here.
The Scrazzl API is a REST API that can be accessed by sending HTTP requests to the proper API endpoint from any programming language with HTTP support. Since each endpoint is a URL you can access data from the API by using a command line program like cURL, a programming language like PHP, Python or Ruby, or even by viewing the URL in your browser.
For example, to search for a product by its vendor name and catalogue ID you can send a request to the /v2/products end point: with proper API token and platform as the query string parameters.
All users of the Scrazzl API are required to sign an API agreement. The following summarizes key provisions in this agreement that relate specifically to the use of CompareNetworks (CN) data. For new API users more detailed and specific agreements are drafted based on the nature of the API application. For more details, you can register your application here.
