The iLab booking system supports effective and efficient research platform management. Many platforms now use iLab, and more are expected to come on board.
iLab allows you to:
- request training on equipment
- search and book research equipment and services
- manage services and analytical reporting
- create access for your lab members
- reserve specific platform equipment and resources, and maintain a calendar
- access control for sensitive or validated equipment
- manage time and cost-tracking.
