Chemical Inventory & Tracking

Chemical Inventory & Tracking

All chemicals in the Chemistry Department are barcoded and entered into a chemical inventory and tracking system. It is very important that any chemical that is moved from one room to another, or discarded, be updated in the system.

The system we are using is a web-enabled database that is hosted at the University of New Hampshire. A chemical record can be easily updated from any computer with a web browser. Please follow the directions and link below to update any chemicals that move or get discarded.
