Research Store

The research store operates as one-stop convenience store model that stocks common items for research use. Purchases are made in bulk quantities, thereby reducing the price of all commonly used lab items. This arrangement translates into savings for researchers buying common lab essentials such as gloves, pipettes, serum. The research store aims to provide an easy on-site access to commonly used lab consumables. About 100 different consumables items from various vendors are stocked for immediate purchase from the store. Researchers may purchase these consumables under the Ariba NRDA_NRDA: Research Store Catalogue.

The research store also carries Freezer Consignment items, which is a convenient way for researchers to withdraw enzymes and reagents. We have more than 100 consignment products available. One of the Freezer Programs leverages on RFID technology which allows our researchers to have access to enzymes and reagents round the clock.

Store opens from 9-12pm and 2-5pm, Monday to Friday. For enquiries, please email us at
