Medical Center Stores
We welcome you to your favorite source for all laboratory and research supplies and equipment. We are conveniently located on the 2nd floor of the Medical Education Building. In addition to the stocked research supplies, we specialize in new lab set up and equipment purchases. Please contact us for any of your research needs!
Stores functions as a liaison between the researcher and the Office of Environmental Health & Safety and the Purchasing Department minimizing paperwork and expediting request for purchase. MCS stocks commonly used research supplies which can be picked up or delivered to the customer daily. We pre-bid remaining research supplies from many Vendors which can be ordered as the need arises. The discounting received aids MCS in keeping cost down for our research community. The Storeroom also has Supply Centers for Bio Rad, Life Technologies (Invitrogen), NEB, Promega, Qiagen and Roche. The available stock in these Centers is determined by the usage of the LSU Health Science Center community. We are able to add product as your needs change by you simply making a request.
Staffing: Stores is staffed by a Manager who has many years of experience in laboratory research, an Associate Manager and an Assistant Manager, who have a minimum requirement of a Bachelor’s degree in a scientific or health concentration.
In addition, the experience of the Stores staff enables us to work independently at the request of a Department Chairman or Business Manager to stock and set up a new lab with basic research equipment and supplies for incoming faculty. This service allows a new faculty member to begin research immediately upon arrival. The management of MCS is supported by other staff members performing stock clerk and clerical duties to ensure orders are processed promptly and audit trails are maintained.
Scope of Service: Medical Center Stores serves the entire LSU Health Science Center, LCRC, Children’s Hospital, Ochsner Hospital, UNO, Tulane Medical Center, Tulane University, Xavier University and LSU main campus in Baton Rouge.
Affiliations: We are a member of the National Association of Scientific Materials Managers. This enables the staff to remain current with new trends, safety procedures, OSHA standards and other related professional concerns.
