First published Friday, June 3, 2011
The University awarded a contract for bone grafting products to Wright Medical Technology, St. Louis, MO, for an estimated $375,000.
The purchase is for bone grafting products that are used in bone regeneration/implantation procedures for hip and knee revisions.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the item or service is copyrighted or patented and is not available except from the holder of the copyright or patent. This is a sole source because the bone grafting products are patented, and no other vendor provides products that serve the intended purpose. The products include items manufactured from calcium sulfate and demineralized bone matrix that are bioassayed to ensure their osteoinductive potential. The products also include a graft fixation device designed to bring the cancellous bone region and the bone channel into abutting contact for optimum bone in growth and maximum graft fixation strength.
