Chris Gradel operates the Storeroom in room B119 where all building ordering and receiving takes place. The storeroom maintains a stock of over 800 different items, including general research and administrative supplies. Chris also maintains blanket orders with a large number of common scientific suppliers. See Chris first with supply orders.

Feel free to ask him about a Bock Labs value-enhanced-service, the Freezer Program, located on campus. Examples of products available locally (i.e., Babcock, Biotech, Microbial Sciences) include DNA, RNA, enzymes, clean-up kits and acrylamide from Invitrogen and others, featuring a 5% price discount.

Chris is also responsible for distributing radiation dosimeters on a quarterly basis. The report for the previous period is posted in room B119. Check your name on this report quarterly. If you do not have a dosimeter and need one, please see your Lab Manager or P.I. Be aware that if you need to work with any radioactive materials, you must take a Radiation Safety course ( After completing the course and submitting a dosimeter request form, Radiation Safety will mail your dosimeter to Chris who will then distribute it to you.
