AggieSupply on-campus stores provide products that employees can purchase items for the workplace, research and maintenance. These stores are for departmental purchases for official use only, with the exception of AggieSurplus, that also provides goods for sale to the general public.
Our ability to sell in stock goods, previously owned goods, and goods from trusted suppliers creates efficiency in the campus supply chain. AggieSupply includes the following stores:
- AggieSurplus (purchases also available for general public/personal use)
- Central Storehouse
- Furniture Program (transitioned to Design and Construction Management 10/21/19)
- Maintenance and Repair Operations Store

We are a campus resource where you can quickly get frequently-requested research and maintenance supplies.

- Air Filters
- Electrical (Hardware & Lighting)

The store operates in partnership with Fisher Scientific as its primary supplier. To request an item be carried by the main Scientific Store or the Chemistry Store stockroom, please complete the appropriate request form on the Forms page and submit to a staff member listed below.
Come prepared to the store! Make sure you have the 7-digit account number you wish to use for your purchase.
Location and Hours
The Scientific Store is now located at the former AggieSurplus location at 650 LaRue Road. The store is no longer located in Haring Hall. The new location is larger and more spacious, making it easier to browse and shop, offers short-term visitor parking in front of the store, and is easier to access from more campus locations!
Hours are 8 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
All AggieBuy orders to the Scientific Store fully approved by 3pm will be delivered to Davis campus and other university locations within the city of Davis the next business day, Monday through Friday, excluding campus holidays. We also continue to be available for customers that prefer to pick up their purchased items from the store (will call).
Meet and Greet with Our Suppliers!
Ongoing "meet and greet" sessions will be offered at the Scientific Store with several of our suppliers. These sessions will provide an opportunity to learn about new product offerings, ask questions, and enjoy some light refreshments:
- USA Scientific: Every other Friday from 10am to 12pm
- Life Technologies: Every other Tuesday from 10am to 12pm
Located in the Chemistry Building, room 149, the store is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. This store specializes in chemistry-related supplies and lab ware.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
The UC Davis Scientific Store is the place for new laboratory workers to obtain PPE, including lab coats and safety glasses (non-prescription), and/or when hazards or processes change in the workplace resulting in new PPE requirements. See the Prescription Safety Glasses page as well. Principal Investigators and new laboratory workers must first access the Assessment tool to conduct a lab safety assessment and obtain a print-out to receive the proper PPE.
We have resumed providing PPE fittings for lab coats, and our current PPE vendor has provided us with a specific sizing chart that we can share with customers when they come in to select the requested PPE.
Preventative maintenance of pipettes, including inspections, cleaning and minor repairs, is conducted at the store by representatives from Rainin. Details can be found here.
Kiosk Supply Center
The Scientific Store manages the self-serve kiosk located in the campus Health Sciences District in Vet Med 3B. There is currently an NEB kiosk that carries a wide range of on-demand life science enzymes, molecular biology kits, gels, reagents and other supplies; you can register right at the kiosk to use it.
If you have any questions about the kiosk registration process, call 530-752-0157 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
