KLARA is the chemical registration system for all chemicals and the risk assessment system at the department.

For an introduction to Klara, please watch this film

KLARA login

Each purchased chemical must be registered in the system and a barcode needs to be attached to the container. This is done by the KLARA inventory officer that each research group has. 
The group leader (principal investigator) appoints a person responsible for KLARA. (KLARA Inventory officer). 

In KLARA you can:

Check what chemicals are available in your group or at MMK or other departments at SU

  • For information at MMK go to “start page” and use the “find” function
  • For information at SU use the tab “chemical products“ on the top of the KLARA page 

Check the Material Safety Data Sheet information (MSDS) for chemicals/solvents/gases
Create/Upload/find risk assessments for experiments. PI needs to approve and sign the risk assessment. The signed hard copy should be found in the lab of the respective experiment. 
Find out which substances require an investigation and/or permit or an exemption to use/store!! 

For example: Mercury needs an exemption
The application document page is found in KLARA where the mercury compounds are listed. The official application for the permit is done through KEMI.

Contact the local Laboratory safety coordinator at MMK (by filling the Usage of Mercury form) and KLARA Administrator for further information of how to proceed.

Duties of KLARA inventory officer:

Register new products purchased in the research group, and add new/updated MSDSs into the system
