ATTENTION ⚠️

Some institutions were affected last week with having their billing files sent from iLab to their financial system. This has been resolved and files were sent, as one, from iLab to the institution financial system over the weekend. Going forward, files will post as normal, during the regular times that were built with your custom financial integration. If there are any issues with your billng file, open a new help ticket, by clicking on Help at the top right of your account page or by emailing ilab-support@agilent.com.
