First published Monday, March 6, 2023
The University awarded a contract for an electrospray ionization mass spectrometer.
Acquisition of this state-of-the-art, newest generation mass spectrometer will enable many intra- and interdepartmental collaborations subsequently resulting in numerous high impact publications and grants. This acquisition is also critically important for our NIH R01 grant on the development of Protein Surface Azidation Mass Spectrometry.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for performing sponsored research and other sponsored activities under grants and contracts funded by the sponsor or by sources other than State appropriations. (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b)(8)) The obtained price was comparable or lower than the price other academic groups paid for the same device. The vendor has offered a significant discount.
