Mark the applicable exception:
An urgent and compelling need exists, and following the procedures would result in unacceptable delays(FAR 8.405-6(a)(1)(i)(A);
Only one source is capable of providing the supplies or services required at the level of quality required because the supplies or services are unique or highly specialized; (FAR 8.405-6(a)(1)(i)(B));
In the interest of economy and efficiency, the new work is a logical follow-on to an original Federal Supply Schedule order and the original order was placed in accordance with the applicable Federal Supply Schedule ordering procedures.

Items peculiar to one manufacturer. An item peculiar to one manufacturer can be a particular brand name, product, or a feature of a product, peculiar to one manufacturer). A brand name item, whether available on one or more schedule contracts, is an item peculiar to one manufacturer (FAR 8.405-6(b)).
Rational/explanation to support cited authority:
The SPiNDrive Thoracic Navigation System is the only system in the world that allows physicians to accurately access small lesions via multiple approaches. Veran s hybrid lung diagnostic procedure, SPiNPerc, provides physicians with the capability and flexibility to perform needle-guided biopsies of the lungs when an endobronchial approach cannot reach the lesion. SPiNPerc helps streamline patient care by taking the multiple procedures, departments and visits required to do a lung biopsy and reducing it to one procedure, one department and one visit. SPiNPerc is the only proven cost effective patient care pathway
