Ordering and Collection

After checking out and confirming the items in your cart, wait for approval from your PI/approving officer. Print out the hard copy of the order from your buyer’s history page, and bring it to the CBC Store to collect the items. Non-approved orders will not be entertained.

Observe all appropriate safety procedures, including the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and secondary containers, when transporting chemicals and solvents.

Each research group will be issued an invoice on the 5th day of every month. The invoice must be collected by a research student from the group, who must then pass the invoice to the PI to authorize payment.

The signed invoice must be returned back to the Store within five working days after its issue. No further items from the store will be issued to the group until the signed invoice has been returned to the store.
