The University awarded a contract for reagents, test kits, and supplies to BD Diagnostics GeneOhm, San Diego, CA for an estimated $199,000.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the sole supplier's items are needed for trial use or testing. BD Diagnostics GeneOhm is the only manufacturer for the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) molecular assay for the rapid detection of bacteria called methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). This is the only FDA approved kit to be used in conjunction with the existing Cepheid SmartCycler instrument obtained through reagent rental. The University will not take title to the equipment.
