Request for Services

Create a Histology Laboratory and/or Tissue Bank Service Request

Using your WVU ID, you can place orders:

  • Navigate to the core page:
  • In the upper, right hand corner of the page, login using your WVU ID.
  • Click the Request Services tab and click on either Research Histology or Tissue Bank under the Service Projects and Quote Requests section.
  • Submit a Histology Laboratory Application if you haven’t already done so and wait for Core approval before submitting a Histology Laboratory Service Request; if you have an application on file you can submit a Histology Laboratory Service Request.
  • Submit a Tissue Bank Application and Service Request.
  • You will be asked to provide payment information for your request before submitting the request to the core.
  • Your request will be pending review by the core. The core will add charges and submit it back to you for approval. Make sure to watch for an email from iLab regarding your updated project.
