NEW! Airgas liquid nitrogen cylinder refill code changes. As per the February 5 memo, ordering codes in the ePro Airgas punchout system have changed for liquid nitrogen open top cylinders (dewars). This change is due to FDA requirements. The two new codes are NI GMPDEWARFILL5L (use for 10, 15 and 25 liter orders) and NI GMPDEWARFILL25L (use for 35, 40, and 50 liter orders).
NEW! Updating Supplier Addresses Just Got a Little Easier. Starting Thursday evening, February 14, the Supplier Address screen in Connect Carolina will include an additional column with more address detail. The second address line should make it easier to identify the supplier’s address that you want to change without clicking to another screen. Those impacted by the change received an email explaining the changes on Wednesday, February 13.
