G35 Lab, G25 Stockroom
We maintain a stockroom offering approximately 1500 commonly used lab consumables from more than 20 vendors which are available to the research community at a discount. Same day pickup or delivery is available for most products. We also provide basic tissue culture services and training. We offer long-term cell storage, mycoplasma testing and provide access to various technologies requiring specialized equipment such as Amaxa's 4D Nucleofection device and Seahorse Bioscience's XF technology.

Training is provided by the core technical staff for Seahorse Biosciences XF96 and XF24(3) Flux Analyzers. Training includes experimental design and execution and analysis of data. An Amaxa 4D Nucleofection device is also available for use by investigators.
In the Cell Culture Laboratory we perform basic cell culturing services for researchers. We routinely thaw, grow, maintain, expand, freeze, mycoplasma test and store cell cultures for laboratories. We’re equipped to grow both adherent and non-adherent cells to a researcher’s required growth point, in amounts from a single dish to multi-liter harvests. We work closely with your lab to assure your cells are ready for use at the required time. A variety of commonly used cell lines are available for sale to researchers. We also maintain a long-term cell storage facility, utilizing a liquid nitrogen jacketed -180°C freezer. Liquid nitrogen storage is also available.
In the Stockroom section of our facility we routinely stock approximately 1500 commonly used lab consumables including cell culture media, supplements, items for PCR, modifying reagents, electrophoresis products, etc. Special ordering for non-stocked items is available. We carry items from the following vendors: Agilent Technologies (Stratagene), Applied Biosystems, Bio-Rad, Clontech, EZ BioResearch, Fermentas, Fisher Scientific, G Biosciences, Greiner, HyClone, Integrated DNA Technologies (IDT), Invitrogen, ISC BioExpress, LabSource, Lamda Biotech, Lonza, Mediatech (CellGro), Microflex, Midwest Scientific, Miltenyi Biotec,New England BioLabs, Promega, Qiagen, Roche, Santa Cruz Biotechnology, Sigma Aldrich, USA Scientific, and VWR Scientific.
We also maintain multiple “satellite” supply centers scattered across the Medical school campus for several vendors, including Fisher Scientific, Promega, Roche and Sigma Aldrich. These sites allow for after hours and weekend pickup of consumables. Most items are available at a significant discount without associated shipping and handling charges. In our efforts to fully service the Washington University research community we attempt to stay adaptable to changes taking place on campus so we can continue to provide top quality products and services to researchers. Therefore, new products and vendors are added if there is enough interest on campus. No PO number is necessary at the time of purchase. Researchers are billed monthly via the electronic AIS system or by hardcopy.
