Biomedical Research Store Now Live in MiCores
On Monday, October 8, the Biomedical Research Store transitioned to MiCores, an online system from Agilent Technologies designed to streamline the process of ordering and billing for core purchases. The Store will be using the system for billing purposes only.
What does this mean for you?
- Beginning Monday, October 8, 2018, all users will need to be registered in MiCores in order to purchase products from the Biomedical Research Store.
- Most current users have been preloaded into the system. These users will already be affiliated with your lab and respective shortcodes that you have approved for their usage.
Attention PIs and Lab Managers: You may receive email requests (ongoing) from researchers in your lab who have affiliated themselves with you as PI in the MiCores system, in order for you to approve lab members and manage financial requests. The email from Agilent Technology will have specific instructions on how to approve the request and manage/approve funds for your researchers.
Note: If you need further instructions on this process, see the MiCores Lab Management Wiki.
