This purchase is for the Ventana Benchmark XT system supplies and reagents for staining of patient tissue for examination by a pathologist. This is a sole source as only Ventana products have the dimensions and specifications that will work in the Benchmark XT system.
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. Compatibility is also a factor as Pathology has been utilizing the Ventana system since 2008.
