The University awarded a contract for MiSeq instrument supplies.
Supplies for the operation of the MiSeq instrument from Illumina. This will be used to perform Cystic Fibrosis mutation testing on patients of the University of Illinois Hospital.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for medical supplies or medical services necessary for the delivery of care and treatment at medical, dental, or veterinary teaching facilities utilized by SIU or U of I (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b-5)) Currently, Cystic Fibrosis Mutation testing is not being performed in the Hospital Pathology Laboratory, but rather is sent out to reference laboratories at a considerable cost. Bringing this testing in house will improve the turnaround time for results as well as save money.
