First published Tuesday, August 3, 2021
The University awarded a contract for the Stryker Neptune System.
The Stryker Neptune System is a constantly closed mobile system that protects the operating room (OR) staff from exposure to suctioned bio-hazardous fluids. It permits patient-to-patient use requiring only a manifold change (accessory supplies). Neptune surgical suction machine or vacuum extractor extracts medical waste from the patients surgical site during surgical procedures. The Neptune System consists of the Neptune mobile unit and disposable tubing and manifold.
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)) The Stryker Neptune surgical suction machine system has to do with direct patient care. Without access to this specific system, the Hospital would not be able to offer proper personnel and patient care that would drive patients elsewhere and result in a loss of revenue to the Hospital.
