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.
We're closing along with the rest of campus over the winter break.
After closing at 12pm December 20th, we won't reopen until January 2nd, 2014.
Tuesday, December 17th is the last day to place a special order.
This will give us time to get your order in before the winter break starts.
Happy Holidays from the Barker and LSA Storerooms. It's been quite a year.
NEB Competent Cells
We're excited to add these competent cells from New England Biolabs to stock. NEB is one of our favorite vendors to work with, they have excellent quality control, and these cells are cheaper and in WAY LARGER portions than the competitors we currently have in stock. We have:
Also, because our discount with NEB is greater than our markup, the storeroom is the quickest, cheapest way to order anything from NEB.
Las year, we lowered our markup from 14% to 9%. We had increased sales so much that we were able to run on a smaller percentage of the take.
We knew at the time that this wouldn't last. The 9% rate meant that we were paying down the vast surplus that had built up over the previous year. So it came as no surprise when our accountant in BDS told us we had to raise it.
So we raised it. To 10%.
That's right: Our work saving you money has been so effective that our more permanent sale price is just barely above our "holy crap we should get rid of this money" price.
We are thrilled to remain the best way to buy most of the things that make science go.
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.
