Access Our Services Using iLab and LIMS

NYU School of Medicine’s Division of Advanced Research Technologies provides internal and external researchers with centralized, user-friendly platforms for accessing the services provided by our scientific cores and shared resources. Instrument reservation requests and the ordering and scheduling of other core services, as well as billing, are processed online through either the Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) or the iLab platform.

Our core laboratories are transitioning from LIMS to the iLab platform in phases. Please contact the core laboratory you are interested in for the most up-to-date information about its transition timeline, or consult our iLab transition schedule.

If you have questions regarding the transition from LIMS to iLab, please contact Catherine Rapelje, project manager, at Updates on the transition are also available (Kerberos ID and password required for login).
