Chemical Inventory and Chemical Storage

Lab equipment is ready for work in the laboratory

Chemical Inventory

Chemical inventories are located on the University managed database through Vertere Inventory Management System.  New chemical orders placed through Deacon Depot will be automatically entered in the inventory.  It is the responsibility of inventory managers (labs, studios, shops) to remove chemicals from the inventory as containers are emptied.

Vertere Chemical Inventory Management System

Contact the EHS Office if you need sign-on credentials for the system.

This User Manual will provide information on accessing and using the system.

Ordering New Chemicals

Ordering new chemicals through Workday ensures your chemical purchase will be entered automatically into the chemical inventory system.
