The University awarded a contract for VerifyNow Supplies for Platelet testing to International Tecnidyne Company (ITC) formerly Accriva Diagnostics, San Diego, CA, for an estimated $120,000.
Accriva Diagnostics supplies needed to operate the VerifyNow platform for the testing of patient platelets.

VerifyNow products are only provided by Accriva Diagnostics. Compatibility is achieved from the usage of the VerifyNow instruments, software and supplies. There is a manual method of testing which is cumbersome, resource intensive, and slow. The VerifyNow produces results in 10 minutes, and takes up the space of a computer. Quick results are essential when preparing for surgery.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the compatibility of equipment, accessories, replacement parts, or service is a paramount consideration.
