Has the institution implemented a campus-wide inventory system to facilitate the reuse of laboratory chemicals?:

A brief description of the program:

Our inventory system keeps track of what chemicals we have, their alternate name, their grade (e.g. 98% pure), their type (e.g. organic, inorganic), their amount, last year's amount, their location(s), storage code (e.g. oxidizers, acids), what experiments they are used in, their required amount (both total and broken down by experiment), supplier name, supplier catalog #, last two amounts ordered from supplier, last two dates ordered from supplier, supplier unit (e.g. case, package), their UN#, their class, their subclass, their CAS #, and their packing number.

It allows sorting in 3 different ways: by chemical type, storage location (for fire department), and various ways to speed up inventory taking and data entry.
