The University awarded a contract for supplies for automated slide preparation system.
Purchase of supplies necessary for the operation of Roche Benchmark XT automated slide preparation system. It is used to perform Immunohistochemisty (IHC) and In Situ Hybridization (ISH) staining primarily for cancer screening for University of Illinois Hospital patients.
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)) Without current pricing in place, we would revert to list price while still having the necessity to purchase these supplies in order to continue providing testing for our patients.
