ALERT

ATTENTION ⚠️

In Observance of a U.S. Holiday Agilent Cross Lab/ iLab Operations Software Support Help Desk will be closed during U.S. hours on Wednesday June 19th, 2024. We will resume regular U.S. support hours on Thursday June 20th, 2024. EU and APAC Support will remain open during this time. For urgent matters, please add "Urgent" to the ticket/ email subject or press "1", when prompted, to escalate a call on the iLab Support phone and we will prioritize those requests first.

Overview of Services

iLab works best with Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.  If using Safari or Internet Explorer, there may be parts of forms that are missing.

 

Important Note on Trizol: As of Spring of 2020, the core will no longer process Trizol or Tri-Reagent extract RNA for down stream analysis such as NGS library synthesis, RTqPCR, cDNA reactions, and microarray target synthesis. There will be no exceptions.   At this time however, we will be happy to provide QC and/or final SBS sequening on user geneated  libraries.  Since Phenol can not be cleaned from a Trizol prep, we strongly suggest an alternative RNA extraction.

Please note any required administrative paperwork by external facility users must be presented and handled prior to sample submission. Please contact Nicole.DeLance@med.uvm.edu to start your paperwork.  Post analysis paperwork will not be processed. This allows the core to deny services if paperwork requires added staff time outside of normal activities. Additional administrative processing or paperwork beyond iLabs automatic invoicing will be billed at the standard labor fee set in the "request for services" tab in iLabs as Applied support and automatically added to the ilabs invoice. So please be prepared. The core is very busy.

Please note the core and its staff reserve the right to deny services for any reason as approved by the director(s).
