Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

The Lab Depot is closely monitoring the status of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19). For frequent updates, prevention tips and symptom information, please visit the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website or the World Health Organization (WHO) website. 

How we can help:

As an online distributor in the laboratory equipment, supplies, and chemicals marketspace, we carry products that directly impact researcher's and medical professional's efforts to contain this virus and produce a vaccine. There are shortages on many products that we cannot offer at this time, such as face masks, isolation gowns, and hand sanitizer. However, there are several other products we have available that are intended to amplify and assist in the testing and production processes. Below, you will find a list of the relevant items we have available to help protect against COVID-19. We work with many vendors whose raw materials and manufacturing processes are sourced within the United States. If you have any technical questions or concerns regarding our products and their availability, please contact us at 1-800-733-2522 to speak with a live sales rep.

Addressing The Hand Sanitizer Demand

With an increasingly high demand for hand sanitizer, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has released guidelines to short-term compounders for the temporary production of certain alcohol-based hand sanitizing solutions. For more information about these guidelines, view the FDA Official Guidance Document. For your convenience, we have outlined and linked the suggested hand sanitizer ingredients.
