The Electron Microscopy Resource Lab is excited to start using an online system to streamline the process of ordering and billing for core service requests. All facility users are invited to use the system, which requires a one-time registration as discussed below based on if you are an internal or external user.  Once you are registered, the system will enable you to place service requests, provide required approvals, and monitor progress.
