ADAC Laboratories of Milpitas, CA, and Siemens Medical Systems of Hoffman Estates, IL, have been named the preferred vendors in a dual-source group buy of nuclear medicine equipment issued by group purchasing organization Premier. Premier members are expected to purchase at least $20 million in equipment from the two companies, according to Pam Parker, director of group buys at the San Diego-based GPO.

Premier selected ADAC and Siemens after surveys of Premier members indicated that the two companies were the highest favored gamma camera vendors, Parker said. Premier members have until mid-May to issue purchase orders that will allow them to lock in the pricing discounts reached under agreement with ADAC and Siemens. Some 62 Premier hospitals have indicated that they are interested in participating in the group buy.
