The Office of Research Support Services (ORSS) provides products and services essential to a quality research environment. Our goal is to support the UGA research community with access to state-of-the-art analytical instrumentation, chemicals, laboratory supplies and equipment, technical expertise, and cost-competitive services. ORSS offers such specialties as glass blowing and instrument design, fabrication and repair. ORSS also provides fiscal support for each unit under the auspices of ORSS.

New Online Research Supply Ordering System

In July 2014, ORSS will transition from the current online ordering system for Central Research Stores (CRS) and Campus Scientific Store (CSS) to a system developed by iLabsolutions.  The iLabs Product Core module will be the primary platform for UGA faculty and staff to order chemicals and lab supplies from CRS, CSS, and the Coverdell Stockroom. The ordering process will have several noticeable enhancements:

In-stock items from all three locations will be visible during the customer order process:

  • Catalog items from major scientific vendors are already loaded for easy access to product listings
  • Only your UGAID and password will be required to access the new system
  • Electronic invoicing for all orders
