The University awarded a contract for laboratory specimen testing of the Harmony test..
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University services.
University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System (UIHHSS) Obstetrics &Gynecology unit requires that all high risk obstetric patients, (females >35 years) and expanding to other low risk patients as well, have a Harmony Pre-Natal test. This is a noninvasive pre-natal test (NIPT) for detecting fetal trisomies in maternal blood.

An emergency procurement is required in order to continue laboratory services that include the testing of obstetric patient specimens and communicate the results in the existing interface software process until a public hearing, scheduled for June 18th, 2014 is held and the sole source procurement # 381JCM is approved.
