In preparation for the next upgrade to SciQuest, the system will be unavailable starting on Friday, March 28 at 10:00 PM until Sunday, March 30, 2014 at noon.   If you have an immediate need, we recommend making your purchase in SciQuest in advance. 
As a reminder, SciQuest is introducing a new user interface designed to streamline navigation and improve usability.  Named Phoenix, the new user interface includes:

  • Bookmarks:  Create and access bookmarks within the application for commonly used pages.
  • Notifications: Now available within SciQuest rather than just via email.  You can choose to have SciQuest messages sent via email, received directly in SciQuest, or both.
  • Cart Preview:  You can now preview your shopping cart without leaving the page you are on.

Click here to preview a pdf version of the changes you'll see beginning 3/30/14. 

In addition, there is also a 3 minute video available hereThis video will play in QuickTime and may take a few minutes to load.

For questions about the new user interface, please email
