The University awarded a contract for testing reagents.
Purchase of reagents from One Lambda to perform testing in the Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) laboratory at UI Health. Reagents are required to perform complex compatibility testing on patients requiring solid organ or bone marrow transplants.
This purchase is exempt from the usual selection processes of the Procurement Code because the procurement expenditure is for medical supplies or medical services necessary for the delivery of care and treatment at medical, dental, or veterinary teaching facilities utilized by SIU or U of I (30 ILCS 500 / 1-13(b-5)) The volume of transplants that the Hospital performs for its patients has increased and the potential successful outcome of those transplants depends upon accurate typing results performed by the Laboratories. Purchase of these reagents is necessary for that to continue.
