Consolidated Purchasing Program (CPP)

The Consolidated Purchasing Program (CPP) is designed to make available to research programs within the University of Arizona the lowest price possible on major use items of radioactive materials and to consolidate orders, thereby minimizing shipping charges.

Orders must be placed by 11:30AM to be delivered by the following schedule:

  • Monday for Wednesday delivery
  • Wednesday for Friday delivery
  • Thursday for Monday delivery
  • Thursday for Tuesday delivery (CoM-Phx orders only)

Ensure that all information, including the catalog number, is correct before placing an order. Prices do not include charges for shipping, handling or use tax.

Shipping and handling charges will vary because the actual cost will be prorated based upon number of vials in each shipment.

Please use the User Dashboard to submit your order.

Contact Research Laboratory & Safety Services at (520) 626-6850 if you have any questions regarding ordering radioactive material.
