Chemistry Stores has a shipping service that is available to all UBC account holders. This service will provide courier and freight services as well as proper documentation for the shipping of most types of goods including vendor returns, repairs and hazardous goods. A handling fee will be charged to JV customers.
Shipping Hazardous Chemicals
For all international non-hazardous chemical shipments, including those to the U.S., a letter of compliance must be included. Please see attached letter outline for proper wording of the letter.
In addition, ALL chemical shipments to the U.S. must also have a TOXIC SUBSTANCE CONTROL ACT PART 707 (TSCA) CERTIFICATION (TSCA) form included.
Goods Being Shipped on Dry Ice
Due to the sensitive nature of goods being shipped on dry ice, please contact Shipping Dept. 24 hours prior to shipping.
Shipping Non-Chemical Goods
Fill out the Non-Chemical Shipping Form.
Once the necessary forms are complete, please bring them and your shipment to Chemistry Stores Shipping Department and talk to one of our shippers. If no one is available, please leave direct contact information.
Laundry Service for Lab Coats
Soiled lab coats can be dropped off in the bin at Chemistry Stores to be laundered. Customers must have a standing account with Chemistry Stores to have coats cleaned. JV customers must fill out and bring the Lab Coat Laundry Request form at time of drop off, one form per lab coat. JV customers cannot drop off lab coats without this form. Also check that you have an active standing account at the time of drop off. If you work with biological materials, coats must be autoclaved before dropping off for laundering.
Please note: Each lab coat must be marked (use permanent marker) with
- PI name
- Your name
- Make sure we can identify the owner of the lab coat easily.
Coats are picked up once per week (usually Tuesday). The cleaned coats are returned about two weeks later. Once ready for pickup from Stores, the group will be notified by email and coats will be placed in the package pickup area in the chemical room.
The charge for cleaning is $3.00/lab coat.
Chemistry Stores will not be responsible for lost or misplaced lab coats.
