Getting Started

We are excited to start using iLab, an online system to streamline the process of ordering and billing for core service requests. All facility users are invited to use the system, which requires a one-time registration as discussed below. Once you are reigstered, the system will enable you to place service requests, provide required approvals, and monitor progress.


To get started, you must register for an account:

1. In the upper-right-hand corner of the screen, please select the Sign In link

2. You will be directed to an authentication page where you will need to enter your Sunet ID credentials

3. Once you have entered your credentials, click the 'Login' button

4. You will be directed to an iLab Registration page where you will need to select your PI/Lab, and verify your contact information. 

5. Once your registration has been submitted, your PI or financial administrator will receive a notification that you have requested membership to their lab in iLab. They will need to approve your membership and assign any PTAs for your use.


Once you have registered in iLab and logged in, please see our Request Services tab to proceed with your request.
