- iLab Advantages
Stability, Experience, Search & Flexibility of Software, Service and Support are few reasons to choose CrossLab iLab Operations Software
- Software as a Service (SaaS)
The iLab system is offered under the “Software-as-a-Service” (SaaS) model. Unlike traditional software, customers do not need to set up, maintain, or support the system locally. Instead, iLab creates accounts for customers on a server that is hosted and maintained by iLab.
- iLab Ongoing Support
Prompt, thorough and accessible support is a central element of the iLab service. Our dedicated Support Team strives to ensure all users have answers to their questions or challenges in an expedient and helpful manner. Unlimited support and assistance is available to all users, including facility personnel, administrators and end customers.
- iLab Implementation
iLab follows a standardized implementation process designed to ensure a smooth transition and to fulfill each core research facilities’ unique requirements.
- iLab Integrations
Integration of the software with institutional financial systems, identity management systems, or specialized software systems is implemented by a dedicated implementation team.
- iLab Application Programming Interface (API)
iLab has developed an application programming interface (API) which enables customers to seamlessly integrate outside applications with iLab’s billing and reporting services. This development is intended for groups who are collaborating with iLab on projects and would like to use the API to deliver additional functionality.
- Institutional Deployment
Deploying a robust and flexible core facility management system offers institutions significant benefits, saving time and money for core personnel, institutional administrators, and researchers. In addition, the establishment of a shared platform ensures the institution enjoys the full benefit of its significant investment in core operations.
- Flexibly Meet the Needs of Shared Resource Labs
The requirements of core facilities vary based on the type, size, and customer base of each facility. Our software flexibility and customized integration process allows us to adapt to the needs of many different types of shared resource facilities while meeting the needs of institution-wide deployments.
- iLab Pricing Model
iLab Operations Software products are offered on an annual subscription basis. This subscription includes all elements required to effectively run the solution, including access to the software, upgrades, maintenance, hardware, hosting, data backup, and unlimited end user support.A Software-as-a-Service model leads to a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) than a traditional software model where the institution is responsible for user support, maintenance, upgrades, and hardware. The iLab subscription is priced on a per-facility basis, allowing affordable access for institutions both large and small. The specific price per facility depends on a number of factors, most notably size and complexity. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request a specific price quote for your institution.

Instrument Access Control & Usage Tracking
The iLab instrument access management module allows facilities, such as nanofabrication and cleanrooms, to manage access of shared equipment through use of a microcontroller. This microcontroller acts as a bridge between iLab and the internal networks on campus, enabling facilities to control access to instruments that are both on an external network or connected locally.
Sample Processing Management
The iLab sample processing tool allows cores to flexibly configure and combine a variety of container types, customer request forms, services, charges, and instrument input files, and specifically tailor them to a particular application or instrument.
Automated Studies Management
iLab study management software helps core facilities manage large scientific studies. This module ties individual tasks of a study to a larger, overarching project, which increases experimentation consistency and allows for collaboration of multiple researchers on one study.
iLab publication tracker helps cores easily search for, filter, and save publications associated with the core. By combining publication data with other reporting data available in iLab, core facility administrators can get a quick view of the valuable services they provide.
