iLab Solutions

The Division of Research has implemented an online solution for the scheduling and billing of services across our Core Facilities. Partnering with Agilent Technologies, we will use the iLab Operations Software to support core management and achieve a more centralized shared lab and research resource experience. iLab will allow Clemson research Cores to: 

  • Streamline reporting and increase transparency for equipment usage, budgeting, and forecasting
  • Increase compliance and create auditable logs of quote approvals, services delivered, and invoicing
  • Shorten billing cycles and increase recharge capture
  • Raise awareness of available resources
