Please use our Online Ordering System for all orders. If you need to send an email to Media Lab for something other than a media order, please ensure you include the following:

  • your full name
  • lab leader
  • building number and
  • phone extension number

All orders must be placed via the Online Ordering System (not by phone or email).
Do not send media orders via regular email unless your server is not working. If you have to email your order, please submit it via the Online Ordering System when the server is back up.

Prompt, proper storage of antibiotic plates will help ensure their maximum efficacy.

  • A minimum order of 0.5L is required.
  • Only 5 media can be requested in a single order.
  • If you would like to order an item not found in our Standard Media list, please select "Special", then place an order by specifying a media name in the "Description" field.
