The National Institutes of Health intends to negotiate on a sole source basis with Life Technologies Corporation. The Office of Research Services needs to purchase medical and surgical instruments/equipment. Our main goal is to study the roles of the selected genes in promoting alcoholic and non-alcoholic liver disease following exposure to alcohol, high fat diet, acetaminophen, endotoxin, etc. and to further study the underlying mechanisms. To achieve this goal, we compare the differential responses in various organs. The QuantStudio 5 Real-Time PCR System and its associated software, enables the user to analyze many genes at one measurement and saves resources that would normally be spent on the materials needed, allowing for less expensive and more efficient testing, while achieving our research goals.
