Laboratory autoclave & glasswash service
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for events or activities paid for exclusively by revenues generated by the event or activity, gifts, or donations for the event or activity, private grants, or any combination thereof. (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b)(2)) Equipment is proprietary and it is best practice to stay with vendor to reduce the cost of replacement parts as the equipment ages. Using another vendor requires that vendor to purchase the parts at a mark-up from STERIS. This service is paid for by revenues from the activity (research) at the Molecular Biology Research Building (MBRB).
