Dry Ice

Dry ice is now available in building 446. The Detector Pool staff can show you where it is. If you are going to get dry ice, be sure to use correct PPE. Floor coordinators have access for non business hours.
If you are going to request a large amount of dry ice (more than a slab) during the week, please let us or Keith Trychta (446 building manager) know at least a week ahead of time, so that we can ensure that it is available for you.
