UCLA Emergency PPE Supply Store

Welcome to the UCLA Emergency PPE Supply Store

The UCLA Emergency PPE Supply Store is currently being established in collaboration with the Campus Procurement Office, Facilities Management (FM), and Mail, Document & Distribution Services. Due to COVID-19-related supply shortages being experienced throughout the world, EH&S and FM are working to ensure that both the PPE and disinfectant supply chains are sufficient for the ramp up of campus operations. Store staff will be procuring personal protective equipment in bulk from suppliers as it is made available to the Campus Procurement Office, managing inventory, and making items available for purchase by all departments on campus.

    The CDC reports that 1/3 of households have used cleaning products unsafely while trying to protect against COVID-19
    LAboratory Disinfectants
    Standard disinfectants found in our labs are effective against coronavirus. Additional disinfectants do not need to be changed or added, frequency of cleaning and wiping things should be increased. 
    Disinfectants are chemicals and should not be mixed.  If they you are using a disinfectant at this time an additional disnfectant may no need to be added.

    TIPS 
    • GS Spartan disinfectant in the FM COVID-19 kits is an ammonia based product and should not be used in combination with bleach or other products.
    • Residues- Labs should be aware of any residual powders/liquid residues on surfaces and clean those with soap and water before applying disinfectants.  
    • Acid or Base Baths- A lot of chemicals don’t allow for coronavirus survival, e.g. you don’t have to sanitize the outside of your acid or base bath with disinfectant.  Formaldehyde, acids/bases, organic solvents, (acetone) etc. don’t allow for coronavirus survival.  
    • Food Prep and Utensils- Lab disinfectants should not be used in food prep areas and on utensils.  Most disinfectants are not food safe. 
    • Soap and Hot Water are also effective against coronavirus.  Laundry and dishes don’t need extra disinfection for your typical risk of exposure a non-health care work has.
