Equipment Depot

The Equipment Depot provides laboratory supplies, consumables and lendable equipment to middle and high school educators in Georgia. The program supports teachers of all subjects to implement biotechnology and laboratory activities in the classroom in order to better prepare students for careers in the life sciences. We also support the growth of biotechnology programs throughout Georgia by equipping teachers with the necessary equipment to perform labs in the Biotechnology Career Pathway courses.

Our inventory currently includes 25,000 items such as pipettes, tips, gloves, gowns, beakers, graduated cylinders and other glassware, gel rigs, microcentrifuges, etc. View our inventory and prepare your wishlist for pickup during our next Open House.

Next Open Houses

Our next Open Houses are July 19, July 22, and August 26, 2017. Register now for your time-slot. Pre-registration is required. Forward the flyer to your colleagues.

Our Open House events are for current educators in grades 6-12 only. Educators must register in advance for a 20-minute time slot during the Open House event. Registrants will receive a confirmation immediately, and directions to our site will be emailed one week in advance. Please arrive several minutes in advance of the assigned time slot to park and check-in. During the 20-minute time slot, participants will browse our shelves, pack their boxes (bring your own!), and check-out. Rolling carts are helpful in transporting boxes back to your car. Participants may take as many items as they like, however, please be considerate of other educators who have similar equipment needs.

Items in the Georgia BioEd Institute Equipment Depot are for educational classroom use only and may not be resold or used for commercial purposes. Georgia Bio does not guarantee or warrant the functionality of the equipment/supplies or that they are free from defects. The equipment/supplies are donated as is. Supplies are available while they last.

Where is the Depot?

The Depot is located in the Brookhaven/Chamblee area of Atlanta.  Please join our next Open House event, or contact us to arrange a pick-up.
