The clean room is a highly sophisticated lab which houses hazardous materials, chemicals, and gases. Please familiar yourself with the clean room guidelines and safety procedure (link in the clean room access protocol).

New Chemicals which are brought into the clean room require staff approval. Please send the chemical Safety Data Sheet (can be found on EH&S website) to the staff with a short description of your process. 

All chemicals left in the clean room must be labeled clearly with your name, group, chemical name, and date.

All containers must be self-standing.

Any chemicals found not meeting these criteria will be disposed of without warning.
