The Office of Collaborative Science (OCS) (NYULMC Cores) has launched LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System), a software-based laboratory and information management system that offers a set of key features that support a modern laboratory's operations, including cores service requests and scheduling.

How to Request Access to LIMS

If You Already Have a Kerberos ID

If you have a Kerberos ID, but do not have access to LIMS, you will need to request access from MCIT (follow this guide).

Please include a valid chartfield in the request to help ensure that you are ready to use the core once the request is granted. If no chartfield is provided, you will have to work with your Principal Investigator, Department Administrator, or Laboratory Manager to set up a billing project. Principal Investigators, their proxies and department administrators can use these instructions to set up a billing project.

Don't Have a Kerberos ID?

A Kerberos ID is a special form of NYULMC identification and is required to access the NYULMC online scheduling system and registration process (i.e., LIMS). If you do not have a Kerberos ID, we will provide one for you:

Please email us your complete name and birth date, and a member of our staff will submit a Kerberos ID request on your behalf. The entire process takes about 1-2 weeks, so please plan accordingly.
