Are you planning to purchase new equipment for a laboratory?
The very nature of research requires specialized equipment for laboratories. Because specialized research equipment is often not formally tested and validated to meet American safety standards (e.g., U.L. Listed), and procurement and installation may require unplanned infrastructure improvements including, but not limited to electrical service, HVAC capacity, noise/vibration dampening and structural loading, all purchases must be reviewed according to the criteria outlined in the Equipment Definitions and Checklist.
Follow the procedure below to begin the equipment evaluation and procurement process.
