UH Safety Solutions: Chemicals

Chemicals is a cloud-based chemical inventory management tool developed with a researcher-centric approach. Chemical and safety information, such as hazard codes and first aid, are auto populated. The application enables users to create chemical networks to easily share chemicals while controlling access. Chemicals includes a complementary web application that works in sync with the mobile app and has additional features such as structure search and import/export capabilities.

Features of Chemicals include:

  • Search chemicals by substructure
  • Allow specified inventory to be shared within your own lab, peer labs and your entire institute (manage inventory privacy settings)
  • Add “tags” to classify content in multiple ways
  • Create custom chemical names
  • Create and add novel compounds
  • Integrates with your online ordering system
  • Includes an advanced inventory search based on name, CAS, product number, or substructure
  • Provides centralized support; Risk & Safety Solutions Service Desk supports the application
  • Import and Export capabilities

For more information, see the “Chemicals” guide.

Please note that the Chemicals software is provided as a trial at UH. Chemical inventories are mandatory for all chemical laboratories and this software is one tool that can be used to accomplish this. Please note that inventories generated and managed using Chemicals can still be printed out and/or exported to an excel file.
