Procedures to Utilize This Shared Resource:

For all first time users, please watch iLab user tutorials videos.

The procedures are:

  1. Both lab member who is going to use SKCC shared resources under iLab and their PI need register in iLab system if they haven’t done so. For internal users, they will use their Jefferson campus key and password to log in after complete the registration. External users can generate their own user name and password. PI should register first, so their lab member can register under the PI’s lab. PI need approve the lab member’s membership in iLab system before he can join the lab in iLab system. See instruction How to manage membership request and charge codes(for PI)

  2. After PI assigns the charge code, the lab member can submit a request to us in iLab system under Request Service tab. Please fill out samples information and request details in the requisition section and print out the request sheet (use the printer icon under "Forms and Request Details" to download a PDF file and print it out).
  3. For non-Frozen request, no approval is needed. Please submit the request sheet together with the samples to us. For frozen request, please always call 215-503-3858/8826 or email us to make an appointment before submitting the samples to this shared resource.
