Bar coding can be done, but is very difficult to maintain. IF all chemicals enter the facility through one main stockroom and stockroom personnel are willing to do the bar codeing it may be possible. My experience is that chemicals enter the facility in many different ways especially if faculty are able to direct order their supplies. If materials are transferred to smaller containers the bar coding may be lost, as well. All of this depends on what you are trying to achieve with the bar coding.
