Center of Laboratory Supplies

Latest Update

Center of laboratory supplies (CLS) stocks common solvent, compressed gas, and labware to ensure the consistent laboratory supplies to research lab in the university. By delivering the chemicals to laboratories directly and installing compressed gas cylinders for users, we can have a better control in the safety aspect during chemical transfer and compressed gas installation. Besides, we also manage the dangerous good (DG) store licensing issue and assist research members in applying different chemical-related licenses. 

In November 2022, CLS launched a new online system, which combines the dangerous good management system and procurement system. Maintaining DG inventory of each lab and continuous monitoring of DG quantity in the campus is important in light of the amendment of the Dangerous Goods Ordinance (Cap. 295). The system provides a platform for the users to maintain the DG inventory in their lab. By connecting to FMS, the system allows same day budget transfer after the user received their items. This reduces the administrative effort and time in handling back charges.
