First published Wednesday, April 27, 2011
The University awarded a contract for Duraseal dural sealant to Tyco Healthcare Group, LP, Mansfield, MA, for an estimated $330,000.
The purchase is for Duraseal dural sealant that is used by a surgeon in cranial surgery to obtain a true watertight closure.
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 Duraseal dural sealant is patented, and no other vendor provides a product that serves the intended purpose. The surgeon can spray the sealant onto the incision, and the sealant will stay in place while healing occurs naturally underneath.
