- Radioactive materials should be purchased through the PantherBuy. IPS provides electronic approval through e-mail notification to the Radiation Safety Office (RSO) thus eliminating the need to hand carry requisitions across campus. Once the RSO approves an order, it is electronically submitted to the supplier.
- The IPS suppliers available for radioactive material are PerkinElmer, Amersham and MP Biomedical (ICN). They have supplied electronic versions of their catalogs to Purchasing including the negotiated University pricing. All radioactive products from these suppliers must be ordered through IPS.
- Though the online catalogs include non-radioactive products, do not combine non-radioactive and radioactive items on the same requisition.
- If the product's supplier is not on IPS, submit a paper requisition (FORM 0139) to Purchasing.
