Key Requests – The Media Room will issue keys to its facilities to approved laboratories.  Key requests can be submitted by each laboratory’s PI to IMB’s Buyer Ron Hanson, located in 269A Klamath Hall.  After processing the keys can be obtained at the UO Public Safety Office and are non transferable.


Waste Autoclaving – in order to contain actively growing organisms all waste needing to be autoclaved must be completely contained in a closed autoclave bag and placed in an autoclavable stainless steel bucket.  Use of the stainless steel buckets and waste autoclaving services are included in your glassware service fees.  

     Researchers may place these prepared buckets of waste on the floor in front of our small autoclave.  We will autoclave and dispose of them in the university dumpster and clean the buckets.  Clean buckets can be found in the autoclave room of 241 Klamath.  Autoclavable waste bags are available for purchase – just ask one of our employees and we can show you where they are.  

Note:  Please do not dispose of any media in the Media Room sinks or trash cans.  If you have any questions or need help please speak to one of our employees.


Quality Control – If you are entering our fly food preparation rooms please do not enter with any actively growing vials or bottles.  If you are entering either rooms 237 or 241 Klamath please do not enter with any actively growing projects that are open or uncontained.  If your lab is working with any specialized items or chemicals please contact Media Room Supervisor to clarify the handling procedures before placing them into the general glassware processing system.


Billing – Each service center is evaluated and billed separately.  Usage will be assessed at the end of each month.  Media Room users will be billed on a monthly basis through the IMB Accounting Department.  For more detailed information please see the individual Billing & Pricing pages for each of our facilities (Glassware Billing, FlyFood Billing, Media Preparation Billing).
