How to Set Up Chemical Storage Units

Chemical Storage Units are specific physical locations within your lab where chemical containers are stored. Typically, these locations will include flammable cabinets, refrigerators, acid cabinets, and dry chemical cabinets. Chemical Storage Units must be labelled with a physical label to match the name in Chematix. The default "undefined" location will be listed in every lab room in Chematix and cannot be edited or deleted and will be where new hazardous chemicals will be inserted into your Chematix inventory listing.  Transfer newly received chemicals (click here for steps) into their appropriate storage location in Chematix.
