Hospira IV Solutions

[2014-04-04] Hospira warns that some of their IV solution bags may have developed leaks and should be visually examined before use. Their recall notification is available online.


[2013-10-24] Following a ChemWatch upgrade, it may be necessary to do a hard-reload when accessing our MSDS resources: press Ctrl+F5 after loading if it does not appear correct. If that does not work, clear your cache and try again. The problem should be resolved within a week but until then this workaround may be useful.

ThermoFisher CO2 incubators

We recently received a notice from ThermoFisher regarding a potential defect in some of their CO2 incubator models manufactured between April 2001 and September 2009 (see attached letter for specifics).

In some isolated cases, the door hinges to these units have failed. Doors have fallen off, risking personal injury and potentially compromising experiments.

ThermoFisher is providing free replacement hinges and instructions for all affected units.
