The University awarded a contract for a gas chromatography mass spectrometer to Agilent Technologies, Wilmington, DE, for an estimated $90,201.60.
The purpose of this instrument is to provide research capability for chemical and toxicological research in the chemistry department. The data systems on other instruments do not allow cross-comparison with more than 15 years of previous data.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the
required compability of data system software for analysis and comparison with multiple years of previously acquired data is paramount to our research.
