The University awarded a contract for reagents and supplies.
Reagents and supplies needed for the operation of the Abbott Architects currently in place in the UI Health Pathology Laboratories. These analyzers perform immunoassay testing for UI Health patients.
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)) This procurement will allow for the continued operation of the Abbott Architects which perform essential testing for UI Health patients at a high volume throughput. It would not be beneficial in terms of testing turnaround times nor financially to send to another laboratory.
