How to Define Undefined Chemical Containers (specify locations)

"Undefined chemicals" are chemicals that appear in your chemical inventory but do not have a specific location defined such as a flammable cabinet, a refrigerator, or a shelf.  Undefined chemicals will be listed in your Chematix inventory under the storage unit called undefined.  The undefined storage unit is a default virtual storage unit.  You must have at least one other storage unit set up in Chematix to which you can transfer chemicals.  Click here for storage unit setup instructions.

Follow these steps to define locations for all chemicals:

  1. Login to Chematix ( and click the Inventory tab.

  2. Click the Manage My Inventory link under the Inventory Tab.
