First published Monday July 17, 2006
The University awarded a contract for research lab supplies for reproducible experiments to Invitrogen Corporation, Chicago, IL for an estimated $32,000.
If researchers order from other companies, even though the product has the same name, it adds an extra variable to the experiment. Research experiments are repeated several times before any data can be published. Each item in the experiment needs to be exactly the same each time so the results are reproducible. Changing vendors in the middle of research could change the results and make the work less reliable or uninterpretable.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the principal investigators have specific items they purchase and the same vendor is necessary for consistent and reliable data in the reproduction of their experiments.
