    Restricted Catalog Numbers

    95% & 100% Ethyl Alcohol:

    Although 95% and 100% Ethyl Alcohol are listed in the Biochem Stores catalog, catalog numbers 1004521 & 1004522, because of governmental taxation and other restrictive governmental regulations, they are only stocked by Biochem Stores so they may be dispensed to departments of the university. Therefore if you need to purchase either of these items they must be put on a university MFK and you must fill out a Record Card stating that the alcohol will be used only for scientific purposes.

    Gas Cylinders:

    Gas Cylinders are currently only available through Praxair. If you need assistance with getting set up to purchase cylinders, please contact them at: 319-363-2156
