Biosafety Cabinet Certification

 The BSC request process has recently changed. All requests must be made through iLab for the RBL Core Facility. The PI will need to access the below link and register the lab. You will need your NetID and password. The PI’s main role is to manage the funds within a lab, manage the lab members, approve requests if needed, and view and approve invoices. If you have any questions or problems, please contact Steve Wills at 901-448-2389 ( or Jayne McKinnie at 901-448-3032 (
