Summary Sentence: Does your lab need some love? Clean it up, swap it out!

Full Summary: No summary paragraph submitted.

IBB will be resuming our annual summer lab clean-up and Swap-O-Rama Days! Tables and large trash cans will be available in the IBB atrium, under the Cell Wall, for your lab's unwanted items to make them available for SWAPPING. 

And, how cool is this? Gently used or excess supplies left after The Swap will be donated to the Georgia BioEd Institute's Equipment Depot which go right into Georgia K-12 classrooms! 


Only items from Petit Biotech Building labs may be contributed to The Swap, but anyone in Georgia Tech's bio-community is welcome to come and "shop!"

Items that are permitted to be left on the tables include:

  • Intact glassware
  • Unopened plasticware
  • Non-contaminated materials
  • Old, non-inventoried equipment*

*If you have inventoried equipment that you would like to get rid of, please contact IBB Facilities Manager Jeffrey Austin with the tag number.

Chemicals, broken glassware, and contaminated materials must be disposed of properly. 

Items not picked up from the atrium by 12 noon on Monday, May 17 will be disposed of by the IBB facilities team.
