First published Tuesday, May 24, 2022
The University awarded a contract for Shimadzu Scientific Instruments to Shimadzu Scientific Instruments, Inc., Lenexa, KS, for an amount not to exceed $808,069.40.
Southern Illinois University Edwardsville's National Corn-to-Ethanol Research Center currently has a Shimadzu LCMS-8060NX that needs upgraded to the newest model of their equipment, and a LCMS 2020 Demo that we wish to purchase. This would include a 5-year extended warranty plus premium PM service agreement.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the Federal or State grant requires a contract with the vendor.
