There’s a lot to consider when ensuring that chemicals are stored safely within your laboratory. If not done properly, major problems could arise. Many times you have so many chemicals spread out among multiple storage areas within your laboratory that it seems nearly impossible to find what you need or to ensure chemical integrity and disposal protocols, and to guarantee the safety of first responders and laboratory staff.
Some problems you may be facing when trying to track chemicals in your laboratory:
- Outdated or incorrect labeling of waste containers
- Adhering to regulations for hazardous materials
- When to use protective laboratory equipment or when it’s not necessary
- Lack of visibility when it comes to your chemical inventory
You’re not alone when it comes to trying to navigate the dangerous terrain of storing chemicals and creating a chemical inventory system that works. The good news is that we can help.
The best way to manage your chemicals is to have full visibility with one single source of truth, but trying to create that manually is time consuming and impractical. That’s where we come in. With UHF RFID and systems such as our Smart Stockroom, you can outfit your laboratory with cutting-technology, allowing you to have an automated chemical tracking system that allows you to know exactly what you have throughout your space, no matter if it is contained to one room or multiple areas.
UHF RFID devices and inventory management software allow you to keep track of important information that will make it easy for laboratory staff to know what they have on a daily basis and in a time of emergency. Things like auditing current chemical inventory, disposing properly of hazardous materials, and using chemicals in order of their expiration dates is simplified with UHF RFID devices and a chemical inventory management system. If you don’t have an inventory management software in place, learn more about Stratosphere, our end-to-end software solution that gives you the ability to regain control of your chemical inventory, so you can get back to the lab work you enjoy.

- Name and grade of each chemical printed on label
- Chemical hazard of each item in stock so that you can meet the National Fire Protection Association hazard code
- Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) registry number
- Container type
- Expiration dates
- Hazard classification
- Where inventory items are located
Every lab has a different way they need to store chemicals and this is why Smart Stockroom was born. Smart Stockroom allows you to configure how you want to track chemicals in a way that makes sense for your workflow. We are dedicated to making sure that your new automated chemical tracking system works for you and not the other way around.

Whether you’re trying to track a small amount of chemicals or a building’s worth, we have the devices to make it happen. Enclosures such as cabinets, refrigerators, freezers help keep chemicals in one centralized location. If you need to outfit an entire room with RFID, our RFID read points will get the job done.
