The iLab North American server has been restored and the site is now operational. Data, like submitted reservations and project requests are being migrated back into the site and we can assure you that no data has been lost. Data is being restored, starting with the most recent and as it is being added to the new search server, it will become available on the iLab site. Some items like billing invoices may not be visible on the site at this moment and during this time, users may experience some general slowness when using the site. More information can be found on the iLab Status Page.

The Core components include: Biospecimen Repository, Nucleic Acid Core, Morphology Core and the Cell Line Core.


Repository management is a key element in the success of the Biopathology Center. Efficient storage methods are utilized in order to ensure the integrity of the irreplaceable tissue samples for future research. The BPC is an active member of the International Society for Biological and Environmental Repositories (ISBER), and follows the highest standards to ensure the quality of specimens in the repository. Specimens are stored in liquid nitrogen, -80°C freezers, -20°C freezers, 4°C refrigerators, which are monitored continuously to prevent the loss of these invaluable tissue samples.
