January 2014 - Online ordering and scheduling for 3 UPCI Shared Resources is now available through iLab Solutions

A new web-based tool is now available for online ordering of products and services, and/or scheduling of equipment, for 3 of our UPCI Shared Resources. Namely, the Cytometry Facility, Lentiviral Laboratory (part of the Vector Facility), and Luminex Core Laboratory (part of the Cancer Biomarkers Facility), are now accepting orders and scheduling equipment through iLab Solutions.

There are many benefits to this new system, including the following:

  1. Log in credentials are identical to your regular Pitt username/password.
  2. Once your iLab account is set up, user information is saved in the system and can be applied across all UPCI Shared Resources within iLab.
  3. PIs can set permission levels for each lab member, i.e., so that they can only place orders with certain account numbers, with limited spending thresholds, etc.
  4. PIs can choose to receive alerts when a lab member places an order or schedules a service.
  5. Easier usage tracking and reporting for our Shared Resource Directors and UPCI administrators.
