The National Institutes of Health (NIH) intends to negotiate a contract on a sole source basis with Promega Corporation, Madison, WI. The purpose of the contract is for the supply of Promega PowerPlex® S5 System. The System is an STR marker PCR kit used for the eyeGENE® protocol as a form of quality assurance. Using this kit, amelogenin and four short tandem repeat (STR) markers are amplified from participant blood and DNA, and compared in order to ensure that the DNA extracted belongs to the participant whose blood was received. The PowerPlex® S5 System can only be purchased through Promega. This specific kit is required for the project because it has been clinically validated in the eyeGENE® laboratory. If another brand of kit were purchased, the new kit would have to be validated before use. Not only would the validation of a new kit be an inefficient use of time and money, the results between patients would not be standardized, which would be a detriment to the project. For these reasons, the Promega PowerPlex® S5 System is the only kit that can be ordered for this quality assurance procedure. Seven (7) units of the System would be purchased.
