About the Storeroom
Serving the entire UC Berkeley campus, we carry an extensive selection of chemicals, enzymes, labware, and office supplies. Our mission is to provide the lowest possible prices on frequently used items.
We carry a large variety of items from select vendors, many of whom offer us special pricing and discounts, including free shipping, which we pass on to our valued customers.
We are a self-serve facility open to UC Berkeley customers from all departments. Click here to apply for a storeroom account.
Please visit our other storeroom located in 171 LSA. Barker storeroom accounts can also be used there.
Yeah...About That Weather
It turns out we spoke too soon. Our East Coast Distributors with late FedEx pickups (so, basically just NEB) are unable to ship today. They may have an early pickup tomorrow as well, so if you're reading this on the 3rd, try to get your orders in by noon.
East Coast Blizzard Has Ended
Today we can confidently say that the blizzard that struck the East coast will no longer delay shipments. Orders will resume as normal.
East Coast Blizzard
Just a quick heads-up: A blizzard on the east cost is currently disrupting some supply lines.
The roads around New England Biolabs our primary supplier of enzymes, have been closed, and they are currently not distributing any orders.
NEB expects to reopen Wednesday, January 28th, and we expect to receive all orders placed between today and Wednesday on Thursday the 29th.
We're sorry for the inconvenience.
The holidays have ended, and shipping has resumed.
IDT orders placed over the break should arrive Monday, January 5th.
Storeroom Holiday Hours
We're closing for the holidays on Tuesday December 23rd at noon.
We're reopening at 8am on Friday, January 2nd.
Please place special orders by Wednesday, December 17th.
We will not accept orders after this date.
MCB storeroom website prices no longer include tax
After years of explaining to customers that the prices on our website include tax, we've decided to end this practice. So if you were used to adding tax to others' prices to compare to our prices, you now no longer need to do that.
The price you see on the websites now no longer includes tax, making it more comparable to prices you see elsewhere. The prices will include our markup.
16 GB Flash Drives
are now $12.99!
That's not very much money!
Rainin Pipet-Lite XLS--extremely cheap.
Rainin has recently discontinued its Pipet-Lite series, and replaced it with Pipet-Lite XLS.
They're still giving us an awesome deal, though. These will cost $226.20 here--roughly half off the original price!
As always, our prices include tax.
New Lower Prices!
Our markup rate, the amount that we charge on every order, has been lowered for the first time in years!
It's dropped from 14% to 9%, barely more than the tax rate.
We have worked so hard to lower our prices. This is a huge deal for us, and there will be more about this in the coming weeks.
But for now, just keep in mind that everything you order from us or pick up in the store is 5% cheaper than it used to be!
Save on Shipping
We get free shipping from all of our regular vendors. Notably, this includes Invitrogen, Qiagen, Agilent, and Sigma-Aldrich. So if you order through us, you save the shipping costs as well. This means that if your order is less than $600, it's worth checking with us to find out your total cost.
Deciding on the right way to order something can be a complicated process--but we try to make it easier for you. If you would like to know how much something would cost through us, and it's not in our inventory (search above), or is marked as a special order, please don't hesitate to contact us (information below), and we'll find out for you.
Dry Ice is now for sale in the Barker and LSA Storerooms at $1.62 a scoop!
Now you can order online with the new online order form, which makes it so that, when you want to order something, instead of having to fill out a Word document, and then attach that to an email, you can just order it online. Also, our website looks better now we think. All props and complaints go to Dylan Ogden (who is freaking awesome).
Fermentas FastDigest Enzymes
Normal enzymatic digestion takes around 20 minutes. These FastDigest enzymes work in just 5 minutes! Don't you want to digest DNA faster?! Why not?! Anyway, we have them, and now you know we have them. Have a nice day.
