The University awarded a contract for laboratory testing services to Charles River Laboratories, Inc., Wilmington, MA for an estimated $50,000.
These laboratory services shall be used for the detection of murine viral and bacterial pathogens in the University Animal Disease Surveillance Program.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the sole supplier's items are needed for trial use or testing. Charles River Laboratories, Inc. shall perform testing services to diagnosis helicobacter bilis and hepaticus in the University of Illinois rodent colonies. This is important because the Animal Care Program at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) has embarked on a program to eliminate helicobacter bacteria from the UIC rodent colonies and it is necessary to identify as many species as possible.
