Contrast Media and Barium Products framework retender
27 July 2021

The ITT for the Contrast Media and Barium Products framework retender went live on 27 July. 

The scope for this framework includes, but is not limited to, the supply of:

  • Ionic contrast media
  • Non-ionic contrast media
  • Gadolinium based contrast for MRI
  • Ultrasound contrast agents
  • Iodised oil fluid
  • Oral medium for gastrointestinal tract
  • Barium sulphate contrast media


As this is a specialist area and the scope is vastly reduced to the previous framework, it will be tendered as a single, un-ranked lot.

We anticipate that the framework will include products already in use by contracting authorities, but it also seeks to include alternative product offerings from suppliers' wider catalogues. This will enable spend review and appropriate product switching during the term of the framework agreement.
