Chemical Safety Common Purchase List

Common Purchase List for Chemical Safety

The vendors and ordering information for common items that a laboratory may need to maintain compliance are listed below. These items are by no means the only acceptable options, but they are some of the most commonly used products at the University of Arizona. Many of these items can be purchased through Arizona BuyWays, accessed by logging into UAccess Financials.

Each item contains the catalog number (CAT. NO.), the unit of measure, location where each item may be bought (e.g. UABS = UA Bookstore), and the item description. For items with no specific catalog number, search on the vendor’s website using the “item description” to locate the correct item. Contact Research Laboratory & Safety Services if you need to purchase large safety equipment such as a gas cabinet, flammable safety cabinets, or an emergency shower.
