Dry Ice is kept in a gray chest cooler next to the entrance.

Shipments arrive every Monday and Thursday. Extra blocks can be delivered for your lab, if needed.

  • Dry Ice usage must be recorded on the log sheet in full at the time of withdrawal.
    This includes current PI, User Name and Current  VUCORES billing number.
  • Please use the scale next to the chest to weigh the amount you take.
  • Usage will be billed “as recorded” regardless of it being returned later.
    *There is a minimum sale of one pound each time you withdraw Dry Ice.*

CDB has extra rolling ice chest available for transporting samples during freezer de-frostings.
Please notify the Equipment Manager if you wish to use a rolling ice chest.

If this dry ice chest is ever empty, please look for additional dry ice availability in the VBI Core’s 6th, 7th and 8th floor autoclave rooms.

Did you Know?
90% of Dry Ice sublimates in ice chests. This is why it is so costly to keep around the lab.
