The University awarded a contract for reagent kits and antibodies to Ventana Medical Systems, Tucson, AZ for an estimated $190,000.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the compatibility of equipment, accessories, replacement parts, or service is a paramount consideration. Ventana Medical Systems is the manufacturer of the existing equipment and the only manufacturer of reagents for their equipment. The existing equipment was purchased in 2001 for a total of $75,000. These reagents will be purchased during the period beginning September 19, 2007 through June 30, 2008 and are used for antibody/antigen staining of samples for diagnostic interpretation of patients at the University Hospital, Clinics, and Outreach Patients.
