PPE Products

In preparation for the increase in Research activities on campus, Procurement, Scientific Stores and the Campus Store have been working in partnership to leverage vendor relationships and explore alternate distribution channels to secure PPE items for the McMaster Community. All PPE items secured through these channels will be made available to researchers and the McMaster community through Scientific Stores, located in HSC 1G1.

The following items have been identified as PPE:

  • Masks – Procedure, Surgical, N95, and KN95 of all levels
  • Gloves – Nitrile, Vinyl, Latex in all sizes and colours
  • Hand Sanitizer – All sizes
  • Cleaning Products – Disinfecting Sprays and Wipes
  • Antimicrobial/Antiseptic Hand Soaps, Washes and Foams
  • Bleach
  • Paper Towels
  • Face Shields – disposable and reusable
  • Isolation Gowns
  • Booties/Shoe Covers
  • Safety Goggles/Glasses

If placing a large order, please note that it may initially be partially filled, ensuring adequate supply for all areas of campus. As additional supplies arrive, stock will continue to be allocated until your order is filled completely. The University follows Public Health guidance in relation to masks and PPE, please visit https://covid19.mcmaster.ca/ for the latest updates. Please note that these guidelines will be taken into consideration when allocating PPE stock.

In an effort to further assist researchers and labs across campus, the Campus Store has developed an online catalogue of the most frequently purchased items in Scientific Stores. These products are now available for viewing online, with real time on hand inventory levels and stock on order levels displayed. Please visit https://campusstore.mcmaster.ca/stores/ to view this catalogue. If you don’t see a product you regularly use listed, please contact hscstore@mcmaster.ca to have it added. This catalogue will facilitate placing orders via email, saving researchers time by shipping orders direct to their lab while also reducing travel on campus. Note: due to the high demand and need for PPE items across campus, these products are not currently displayed in the online catalogue. In future these will be added as the demand for PPE diminishes.
