The University awarded a contract for needle-free injection technology.
Needle-free injection technology for delivery of highly viscous drugs and avoidance of needle injuries or complications associated with frequent needle use. Needle free injection technology is a concept that includes a wide range of drug delivery systems that drive drugs through the skin using any of the forces as shock waves, pressure by gas or electrophoresis which propels the drug through the skin of patients, virtually nullifying the use of hypodermic needle.
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)) National Medical Products' products have to do with direct patient treatment and care. Without access to these specific supplies, the Hospital would not be able to deliver proper care to patients under the University's care, that would drive patients elsewhere and result in a loss of revenue to the Hospital.
