The Albert Einstein College of Medicine supports a broad array of Shared Scientific Facilities and Cores designed to advance the research efforts of Einstein/Montefiore investigators. These Shared Facilities and Cores are operated by experienced personnel to provide researchers with access to a wide array of techniques and services requiring expensive instrumentation, specialized facilities and/or a high degree of expertise to perform. They are administered by various Einstein Centers and Departments. A full list of cores can be found on our website. We also welcome inquiries and service requests from other academic and commerical entities. Please contact one of our core directors to learn more.

The iLab Solutions Core Facility Management software (iLab) allows researchers to reserve time on devices or submit service requests to Einstein Core Facilities that are setup to use the system (see Core Facilities tab above). It also provides Einstein with a centralized billing system for core services. Information to assist new and existing users with accessing and navigating the system can be found on our help and training page.
