The University awarded a contract for intraoperative Charbel Micro-Flowprobes .
Transonic Systems' intraoperative Charbel Micro-Flowprobes are used to quantitatively measure the blood flow in cerebral vessels during cerebrovascular surgical procedures.
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)) Transonic Systems which has to do with direct patient care and without the Transonic Systems devices the University of Illinois Hospital would not be able to offer certain cosmetic cerebrovascular procedures that in turn would drive patients elsewhere and result in a loss of revenue to the Hospital.
