The University awarded a contract for hemodialysis machines.
2008T HD SYS. CDX BLUESTAR is a hemodialysis machine that is used to filter blood. Dialysis is the process of removing excess water, solutes, and toxins from the blood in people whose kidneys can no longer perform these functions naturally.
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)) Dialysis is staying with Fresenius to keep machines consistent with the current platform and at the same time realize significant cost savings. The 2008T BlueStar provides simpler operation and maintenance with greater user control, improved accuracy, and enhanced data stream.
