Announcement of a Sole Source Purchase

First published Monday August 14, 2006
The University intends to award a contract for reagent kits and antibodies to Ventana Medical Systems, Tucson, AZ for $40,000.
Estimated quantities of reagent kits and antibodies to be purchased during Fiscal Year 2007
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the compatibility of equipment, accessories, replacement parts, or service is a paramount consideration. Ventana Medical Systems is the manufacturer of the existing equipment and the only manufacturer of reagents for their equipment. The existing equipment was purchased in 2001 for a total of $75,000.00. These reagents will be used for antibody/antigen staining of samples for diagnostic interpretation of patients at the University Hospital, Clinics and Outreach Patients.

Any such challenge must be submitted in writing to Jeffrey Walsh by August 28, 2006. Late challenges will not be considered.
