We have chemicals in several locations. Everyone should sign up for MyChem, a University of Washington Chemical inventory service. Talk to Andrew Lamb about this. Once in MyChem, you can search for chemical names. You must spell it correctly, and you can only type a fraction of a word if you like. When it finds your item, click to see the room number. Then use this legend: Room:

  1. 409: RNA room
  2. 419: row of freezers (where the -80oC freezers by the shaker rooms are)
  3. 432: flammables & acids cabinet in the central bay
  4. 436: hallway "beer cooler" fridge on the way to the autoclave and media prep rooms.
    1. Note: some (?all) of these moved to the west-most fridge (lighted, single-door) by the purification columns.
  5. 437: red cabinets in media prep room
  6. 408 & 417: people's personal refrigerators. Ask Andrew to look up whose it is; only Andrew can see this level of information because he is the administrator. Then ask the person who possesses it if it is available to share.

Andrew curates this database; please let him know if you buy chemicals, use up chemicals, or discover erroneous information.
