Chemical Exchange Program
These chemicals are tracked and marketed to other potential users on campus.
See the list of free chemicals available to any UBC laboratory. To obtain any of these chemicals contact an ESF technician at 604-822-6306.
The Chemical Exchange Program is a free service provided to the campus and not only reduces purchasing costs, but also reduces disposal costs. In 2011, approximately 250 kg of chemicals were exchanged in 63 transactions within Point Grey campus.
We encourage all labs to participate in this program.
Should you have any excess chemicals in usable condition that could potentially be utilized elsewhere on campus, please forward the chemical name, amount, grade, manufacturer and your contact details to the ESF Technician.
ESF cannot accept chemicals that are:
- past their expiry date;
- radioactive; or
- require refrigeration.
