ChemTracker System Updates
ChemTracker Updates (April, 2006):
ChemTracker pilot implementation began March 6 in Chemistry and April 24 in Biological Sciences and in Chemical Engineering. In seven weeks since the beginning of implementation in Chemistry, 2,895 chemical containers have been bar-coded, 680 bar-coded chemical containers were purchased at ChemStores, and 210 empty bar-coded chemical containers were scanned out from the system.
ChemTracker operation in Biological Sciences and Chemical Engineering launched just last week. All chemicals stocked in the Biology Stockroom have been bar-coded (670 containers); all incoming chemical shipments are bar-coded before being turned over to researchers. ChemTracker implementation in all other departments in the School of Engineering, Physics, and Astrophysics will start sometime next month.
