iLab Management System

The VP&S Office for Research manages the iLab Core Facility Management System for the CUIMC research community. iLab is used by many core facilities at CUIMC, and enables management of equipment reservations and service requests for shared resources. iLab is integrated with the Columbia UNI login and ARC accounting systems to allow for easier access and billing management.

A general introduction to iLab for new users is available. Other role-specific guides are below:

For researchers:

If you are a PI new to iLab, we have created a FAQ page to help you set up your lab account and assign funding sources to your lab members.

For clinical research coordinators:

We have created an FAQ page for clinical research coordinators to address some common issues you may encounter.

For core facility managers:

We have created several guides and best practices for billing in iLab. These guides explain the billing workflow in iLab, how to verify that billing events have posted to ARC, and how to handle charge disputes.

For financial managers:

We are in the process of creating guides for financial administrators. In the meantime, please email us if you have any questions.
