iLab Core Management System

The Analytical and Assay Core and the Histology Core in the Department of Physiology at the University of Mississippi have moved to an online submission system. All users must register and set up an account through the iLab site. However, please be aware that the Principle Investigator must set their account up first and specify the Basic Users (members of their research team) that have access to their account. Directions for registering with the iLab system and for submitting service requests are detailed below. If you are already a user of iLab via another institution, you do not need to register but can log into our core system using your already established iLab credentials.

The login page for use of the Analytical Assay Core is:
