Using 2237# 538-23-1-775-0013Brief Description of Supplies/ Services required and the intended use/Estimated Amount: The desired reagents meet the need for detection of Respiratory Viruses including COVID-19 and on the GenMark ePlex analyzer. Estimated usage is 150 boxes a year. If we cannot perform inhouse testing for COVID-19 procedures will be delayed, isolation costs will increase etc. We would be forced to send all the COVID-19 testing to a reference lab which could take 5-7 days for results. This will give us more capacity for testing. Unique characteristics that limit availability to only one source, with the reason no other supplies or services can be used: Chillicothe VA Medical Center previously obtained the GenMark ePlex Analyzer. This system analyzes RNA using PCR methodology. Testing can be completed in under 2 hours providing clinicians the information required to move forward with treatment. The 65746 SARS-COV-2 PANEL are the only compatible reagents are required to complete the required testing.Description of market research conducted and results or statement why it was not conducted: GenMark is the only distributor of this product. The Chillicothe VA currently owns the GenMark ePlex Analyzer; the requested Reagents are only compatible with the existing GenMark ePlex Analyzer.
