We offer sample discounted service for external academic users for access to all solution NMR spectrometers, as well as our solid state 500 MHz and 600 MHz NMR spectrometers. Formal sample service requests are submitted through the iLab software platform. If you have an iLab account through your home University, there is no need to create an additional account. For rates and other information please contact Dr. Bai for solution NMR sample service and Dr. Quinn for solid state NMR service.

Setting up an iLab Account

  1. Go to https://udel.ilabsolutions.com/account/login
  2. In the upper right corner, you will see a “Register” button. Click or hover your mouse over the Register button, then select the right option “Register for an iLab account.”
  3. Provide your Personal Information and Group Associations. If your University does not use iLab, your PI or department business administrator will need to create an iLab account and Research Group for your PI and approve your membership in their research group.
  4. Under billing information, you may provide a PO you wish to use for service. If you wish to pay by credit card, simply put the words “credit card” in this field. Your PI or department business administrator will likely complete this section.
