Biobar - Reinstated on a limited schedule

Biobar Program

The Biobar Program is a co-operative endeavour among the University of Guelph Purchasing Department, the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology and various company suppliers. This program was initiated to provide convenience and cost savings. 

Opperating Procedure During COVID-19

Good afternoon, The MCB Supply Centre will be reinstated on a limited ‘return to research’ schedule for the time being (hours subject to change). The operating hours for order pickups will be:

Tuesday: 1:30pm – 3:00pm

Thursday: 1:30pm – 3:00pm

Please contact your supervisor or purchasing admin for department specific ordering and pickup information. All orders must be placed by email to biobar@uoguelph.ca. Orders must be generated/ forwarded by a CBS clerk or purchasing clerk from your department directly. Orders can be placed at any time, but please await instructions for pickup.

Please bring a copy of your order to the wicket to ensure accuracy (this will be the customer copy). Signatures will not be required at this time to minimize contact for parcel pickup so please ensure authorization and coding are accurate on all orders before emailing them. Missing information may cause a delay in order placement.

The Supply Centre will be working in compliance and conjunction with Chemistry Stockroom guidelines to ensure the safety of all customers and stockroom staff.

Here are some key points when doing business at the Stockroom:

  • The goal is to perform transactions at the wicket expediently and with purpose.
  • Social distancing and face masks are mandatory.
  • You will see ground markings and barriers at the wicket. Please follow the instruction of the Stockroom staff.
  • You may still use the bell, but you are asked to sanitize your hands with the supplied bottle of hand sanitizer right after using it.
