The Department of Biomedical and Molecular Sciences operates a stockroom/biobar in Botterell Hall, room 821. Disposable laboratory supplies and products from a number of Life Science companies are available for sale or order. The new hours of operation are Monday to Friday from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm.
To purchase disposable laboratory supplies, you must register with the Department of Biomedical and Molecular Sciences through Chris Boer (telephone 32454; e-mail boerc@ queensu.ca). The name of Principal Investigator (PI), Department, account number, and a minimum 6 character password are required. Purchases are recorded directly by customers using a computer in the stockroom. The shelf number on a yellow dot under each product provides a unique identifier that can be used to correctly select the desired item from a drop down list.
Accounts are charged electronically at regular intervals and a printed transaction statement is mailed to each PI’s Department for distribution.
For your convenience, many items are sold in “break out” quantities with pro-rated prices. Prices are usually stable over the year but can change under certain circumstances.
Fermentas, Invitrogen and Qiagen products are also distributed on consignment. Fermentas and Invitrogen products require a fully completed Internal Supplies Requisition (ISR) with the following information:
Qiagen products require a voucher (available in room 821) with procurement (credit) card information.
Prices are listed on the Qiagen web site: http://www.qiagen.com/products/default.aspx
Products in stock are immediately available. Special orders are also welcome. Please write “SPECIAL ORDER” beside the item and provide a lab phone number for product arrival notification. No extra charges or shipping costs are applied to these products.
Technical information on Biobar products should be referenced through the company website or help line, not through the Biobar Managers.
