ChemCentral Pride Hall


ChemCentral Pride Hall located at Zuckerberg San Francisco General (ZSFG) is  located in Room 2551, adjacent to the loading dock and accessible by the service elevator.

Each of our stockroom locations has a 24/7 Self-Checkout Station where you can purchase our products directly with no wait time. To get access to our ChemCentral stockrooms, fill out our SmartSheet form and we will be able to grant access within 24 hours.  

Chemical Receiving

All hazardous chemicals are centrally received and inventoried into the corresponding lab's chemical inventory by ChemCentral staff. Researches will have to pick up their materials that we received for them inside our stockroom in Room 2551 on the "Ready for Pickup" shelf. A ChemCentral staff will send out an email to let researchers know that they have items ready for pick up whenever we receive it. After the items are picked up, the researcher will need to accept our transfer request under "Pending Transfers" on Chemicals.

Chemicals bought through BearBuy with the commodity code 0025 - hazardous chemicals will have the ship-to address for that line automatically changed and rerouted to our ChemCentral address and room during the checkout process. Once the chemical arrives, it will be unpackaged, tagged and inventoried and all excess shipping material will be tossed saving researchers time by taking care of these extra steps for them. 

We also can help remove chemicals from lab's inventories. RFID inventory tags from spent chemicals can be returned to the stockroom in our "Used Inventory Tags" container for ChemCentral Staff to remove from their inventory.


ChemCentral account must be made prior so that we can process your orders and link the purchase with your lab's account and inventory information. 

Purchases from the stockroom can be made through RSS Market Place, a software suite that actively communicates with other UCSF software including Lab Hazard Assessment (LHAT) and UC Chemicals. Common reagents are available to purchase on-site with no markup from BearBuy prices. We also carry a variety of Polycarbin lab plastics including pipette tips and conical tubes. Here is the Pride Hall Building Product List.

ChemCentral is available to anyone with a campus funding source (business unit SFCMP). Campus and Health operate separately, and the money is very separate. Since this program is funded by Campus, it's not available to Health groups.
