Requests

 

Going forward, KUMC's Biospecimen Repository Core Facility (BRCF) is excited to start using an online system, iLab, to streamline the process of requesting and billing for core services. All facility users are invited to use the system, which requires a one-time registration as discussed below. Once you are registered, the system will enable you to place samples and histology service requests; provide required approvals; and monitor progress. Frequently Asked Questions are answered here
