Chemistry Receiving is a focal part of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry because all deliveries of supplies and equipment as well as service providers from the campus and outside–with the exception of deliveries from the Postal Service-come in to the department through the Receiving Area.

Chemistry Receiving is the primary departmental resource for filling liquid nitrogen dewars, gas cylinder exchange, and our dry ice supply.
