iLab Solutions

iLab is a web-based interface used by the facilities within CORE to schedule CORE resources, request training, request a quote or consultation on large projects, review past use, view invoices, and track project communications.

Log in buttons for iLab can be found to the right as at the top-left corner of every CORE facility webpage.


Registering for an iLab Account

All users of CORE facilities must register for an iLab account. Principal Investigators, Researchers, Graduate Students, Undergraduate Students, Faculty, Staff, and External Clients should all register for an iLab account prior to scheduling resources in a CORE facility. 

Members of the University of Maine system should use their login credentials when registering.  The iLab guide for internal users can be found here.   

The registration process is slightly different for community members from outside of the University of Maine system.  The iLab guide for external users can be found here.

If you need additional assistance in getting registered, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at
