    Buying of Lab Coats and Safety Glasses

    • All students must wear a lab coat and safety glasses to work in LSCT laboratories. You may order and pay (by PayNOW) for lab coats and safety goggles through this form by Monday, 10 April 2023.
    • There are two packages, and you can also order the items individually. The sizes of the lab coats are in the diagram further down in the google form.
    • Remember to indicate your course and class to aid in the sorting.
    • If you have your lab coats and safety glasses from other sources, you do not need to buy through this portal as long as your lab coats are long-sleeved and have approximately the same dimensions as in the google form; your safety glasses should also be proper.
    • You do not need to collect the coats/glasses, nor will they be delivered to you. Your lecturers will pass them to you when they see you for your first practical coming semester (they will give them to you before you enter the lab).
    For any queries on lab coats and safety glasses, please get in touch with Ms. Seahmala (
