Ordering & signup


We use our DRSC-FGR PPMS system for reagent requests as well as equipment training, signup, and incident reporting. If you are a first-time user, you will need to create an account in our DRSC-FGR PPMS system.  Please see our first time user set up guide (PDF file). If you are new to using our system to sign up for instruments, please see our guide to instrument training, signup, and incident reporting (PDF file).

Already have an account with us? Go to the DRSC-FGR PPMS System.

Note that there is an Order/Signup quick link on the menu at the top right of every page.

First-time users of instruments should request training by our staff (not second-hand from someone we trained). Once you have been trained by our staff, you will be granted permission to sign up for hours on the instrument.

Preparing purchase orders (POs)

For reagent requests, training, or equipment sign-up associated with fees, we require a PO number (or 33-digit billing code for Harvard users) at the time you place your request in the DRSC-FGR PPMS online ordering system. The PO number is a required field, so your order will not go through unless you enter information in that field. 

Use the following remittance address on your PO:

Accounts Receivable
Harvard University
P.O. Box 4999
Boston, MA 02212

Check to see if Harvard University is set up in your institution’s ordering system prior to creating a PO. If you need to set us up as a vendor or have any other questions regarding ordering or POs, please contact the director.
