Awarded to:

First published Thursday May 11, 2006
The University awarded a contract for lab animals for research to Harlan Sprague Dawley, Chicago, IL for an estimated $95,000.
Purchase of animals from the same vendor provides for less variability in research and thus greatly improves the quality and reproducibility of the studies. Therefore, it is essential to continue to purchase animals from the same source that previously supplied animals for those studies.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the numerous research projects utilize animals from this source for long-term on-going studies. Genetic variations interfere with consistency of experimental results and can jeopardize very expensive and important research.
