Choices

Campus and Medical Center customers order stocked gases and alcohol through our Online Warehouse catalog. Use Custom Store Orders for blends of gas, COC refills, regulators, and handling gear. Campus customers, please order other stocked supplies through the BearBuy website. Medical Center customers, please use Warehouse Stores for other stocked supplies.

Online Warehouse includes:
• Supplies
• Gas and Alcohol Requisitions
• Surplus Purchase

Effective March 1, 2013 the Online Warehouse will serve only UCSF Medical Center customers for Alcohol orders and all campus Alcohol orders will need to be ordered through BearBuy for fullfillment.  Ethanol Alcohol is available from VWR through the BearBuy system at much reduced cost to the requester. 

Returns
Return to Vendor is usually no charge for preferred vendors (VWR and Fisher), but charges apply for non-preferred vendors. We suggest that you call non-preferred vendors directly to make arrangement for your return. If returning items purchased from our store, please use the Return to Warehouse option. These requests schedule the pick up of your item from your location.

Distribution & Storage online services are open to the entire UCSF community, from a computer at a UCSF campus location or off-campus connected remotely via a UCSF VPN account.
