Safety Data Sheets

We invite everyone on campus to take advantage of the MSDS Online for New York Medical College Labs, in addition to our other information items. MSDS Online is a database that contains Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for all chemicals used on campus and their location. Those conducting research use this database as an inventory of the type of chemicals in their labs. SDS’s include information on the supplier and product identifiers, relevant uses, hazard identification, as well as first aid, firefighting, and accidental release measures for each chemical. Please contact us if you have any questions.
