UC Chemicals is a cloud-based chemical inventory management tool developed with a researcher-centric approach. It allows easy tracking and maintenance of containers using a barcoding system. Chemical and safety information, such as hazard codes and first aid, are auto populated. The app enables users to create chemical networks to easily share chemicals while controlling access. UC Chemicals includes a complementary web application that works in sync with the mobile app and has additional features such as structure search and import/export capabilities.

Features include:
• Supports add/remove/track via barcodes and mobile camera
• Advanced inventory search based on name, CAS or substructure
• Provides hazards codes, storage and first aid information.
• Ability to share and track chemicals among research groups while controlling access levels

Heading the right direction

To all the complaints, I’d ask those people do you really want to use paper and binders for another 50 years? And if your thinking we don’t need an inventory, then please your try convincing the government that researchers will be diligent and not store unstable chemicals for 30 years and won’t over stock flammables or other nonsense lol! In a perfect inventories aren’t needed, but we aren’t in a perfect world. So what we end up with is PI’s hoarding chemicals and a way over due, way over burdened UC chemicals system in 2018. It’s not perfect, but it’s heading the right direction and I am just glad any effort has been made! Flying Spaghetti Monster knows researchers and PI won’t make the process easy and will sure let you know in their complaints! So to the UC Chemicals programmers, I’d like to say, keep up the good work and please please keep at it!

Ps if your reading this and you are new to grad school... I promise what we had (or didn’t have) was worse... so try to learn how we got to where we are now, before you complain about what we are working on 😜!

Needs SERIOUS improvement

Not only is this app bad but it also undermines the purpose of safety and inventory database of our chemicals. I’m also not sure why it’s taking so long to create an update to fix the current issues with the app... it won’t even load. It doesn’t seem like EH&S is having good communication with their programming team so it’s going to be hard for future staff to take them seriously when they attempt to take their chemical inventory into the digital realm.

Terrible App

This app is hilariously bad in so many ways. It has stopped working for iOS for a few months now and even with the constant “updates” there seems to be no progress in trying to actually address any issues. Would not recommend at all for any lab to adopt this atrocious app. Look elsewhere because this is not it.
