First time user or new to iLabs?

1). The CISR uses iLab for management of its instrument scheduling and billing. If you don’t have an iLab account, you will first need to create an iLab account.

2). Once you have an iLab account, your PI will need to add you to their VU iLab group and assign you billing information by following section 1&2 of this guide.

3). Once 1&2 are done you will need to request microscope training or EM services through iLab.

After we receive your request, a CISR staff member will contact you to set up a training session or for EM related services.
