Vibration Controlled Transient Elastography (VCTE) System

Notice Number: SS10182017aJS

Sole Source Supplier: Echosens
Earliest Proposed Purchase Date: 10/24/2017
Buyer Name: Jonica Smith
Sole Source Justification:

The FibroScan uses a dedicated equipment using the Vibration-Controlled Transient Elastography (VCTE™) method to assess liver stiffness and indirectly provides the clinician the degree of liver fibrosis.

There are certainly other invasive and non-invasive ways of assessing fibrosis, including liver biopsy and elastography using alternative methods such as ultrasound and magnetic resonance. However, the advantage of FibroScan is it has been widely studied for many types of liver diseases and is FDA approved to assess liver stiffness in several chronic liver diseases. It also provides a point-of-care estimate that is not provided by other methods and it can be completed at the time of the patient’s visit to the medical appointment.

In addition, and unlike other methods The FibroScan can be used in multiple liver diseases, including non-alcoholic fatty liver, chronic hepatitis B, chronic hepatitis C and others.

at 12:00 PM current Mountain Time.

The Utah Procurement Code provides that a procurement may be made without competition when the University determines that there is only one source that can reasonably meet the University’s need for the required supply or service, as described in Utah Code Ann. § 63G-6a-802.

The Purchasing Department has received the following request for sole source procurement:

Product and/or Service to be Purchased: Oroboros Oxygen FluoRespirometer with Nitric Oxide module
Sole Source Supplier: Oroboros Instruments Corp
Earliest Proposed Purchase Date: 10/20/2017
Buyer Name: Anthony Ferrara
Sole Source Justification: The University believes that the Oroboros FluoRespirometer is the only machine that in one unit is capable of high resolution respirometry (HRR) and high resolution fluoRespirometry (HRFR), with the ability to measure oxygen levels in tissue, cells, isolated cellular components, as well as to specifically measure metabolism and biologically reactive molecules. It can also be coupled with specific probes to simultaneously measure mitochondrial respiration and reactive oxygen and nitrogen species and other reactive molecules (nitric oxide, hydrogen peroxide etc.). It can do this both directly and indirectly due to the fact it has fluorescence capabilities. Oroboros is the only manufacturer of this technology. There are no US distributors of this equipment it is only available directly from Oroboros.
