The University awarded a contract for reagents and rental of an Evolis instrumentation to Bio-Rad Laboratories, for an estimated $1,750,000.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the recommended vendor is the only supplier that has an FDA approved enzyme immunoassay platform for the detection of HIV-1 plus O/HIV-2 and has the only approved instrumentation for this assay. The pricing for the reagents and instrumentation are for the five-year period of the contract.
