To All:


This year our university instituted a lab coat policy requiring undergraduate students to wear lab coats in chemistry labs.  We have a handful of students in wheelchairs taking our courses.  Can you recommend a source of lab coats for students using wheelchairs?  Also, how do you handle decontaminating the wheelchair wheels prior to students leaving the lab?
