The University awarded a contract for assay kits to Upstate USA Incorporated, Charlottesville, VA for an estimated $40,000.
The purchase of Beadlyte (R) Hu 22-Plex Cytokine Detectors, software and associated accessories are for ongoing research purposes.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the compatibility of equipment, accessories, replacement parts, or service is a paramount consideration. The assays allow us to measure multiple cytokines at one time while using only a small volume of sample in a cost and time efficient manner. The items purchased have their own unique proprietary properties for which there is no exact replica available. Changing to a different product mid-research would also not be possible for the data obtained from two different manufacturers would not be scientifically comparable. For consistency of scientific data it is necessary to use the same product until the project is completed. Otherwise, it would possibly introduce discrepancies in the data.
