The requesting activity states the following Sole Source Justification:
1.FDA clearance for diagnostic testing.
2.The Fungitell® STAT assay is a design modification to the Fungitell® assay format. The Fungitell® STAT assay was developed to answer the need for a single use test format and smaller kit size relative to the 96-well plate format of the Fungitell® assay.
3.The Fungitell assay detects circulating (1,3)-beta-D-glucan in serum. This antigen is released from many invasive fungal organisms (eg, Candida species, Aspergillus species, Fusarium species, and Pneumocystis jirovecii).

The anticipated statutory authority permitting other than full and open competition for the requirement is 41 U.S.C. 3304(a)(1), as implemented by FAR 6.302-1, Only One Responsible Source and No Other Supplies or Services will Satisfy Agency Needs.
