This is a combined synopsis/solicitation to procure commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in FAR Part 12.6, as supplemented with the additional information included in this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation, quotes are being requested and a written solicitation will not be issued. This procurement is being issued as a request for quotation. Submit offers to RFQ #1018. The solicitation documents and incorporated provisions and clauses are those in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular 2001-007. This acquisition will be processed under Simplified Acquisition Procedures (SAP) and is not a Small Business Set-Aside. The associated North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) code for the procurement is 334516. SCHEDULE: The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases requires a biocompatible high performance liquid chromatography system that has low pressure and high output for the protein purification. The system must have the ability to purify biomolecules from complex starting materials derived from cell lysates, tissue homogenates, recombinant protein expression systems and other sources. The system should be able to perform separations based on a variety of sample characteristics, such as molecular weight, net surface charge and hydrophobicity, while retaining biological activity. The system should have a pump that can provide a flow rate range of 0.05 - 20ml/min and a pressure range from 0-5MPa. The system should have a UV monitor with an Hg lamp including 280nm and 254nm filters. The UV monitor must have signal output range of 0.01 to 5.0 AUFS. The flow cell must have a 5mm-path length. The system must have an in-line, flow-through conductivity monitor. The monitor must allow for auto-ranging between any two ionic-strength buffers with a sensitivity range of 1uS/cm to 999mS/cm. The system must have a fraction collector that allows fixed volume fractionation, time-based fractionation or automatic peak fractionation. The fraction collector must be able to collect flow ranges from 0.001ml/min to 100ml/min. It must also be able to collect up to 120 fractions in 18mm diameter tubes and 8 fractions in 30mm diameter tubes. The system must include the following: a three-position injection valve with load, inject and wash positions; two motorized valves to accommodate up to seven columns, plus one column bypass and an additional motorized valve for buffer selection. This valve must be able to accommodate up to eight buffers for automated selection by the pump. The system controller and software must be able to monitor three pumps, nine motorized valves, a fraction collector, a dynamic gradient mixer, a UV monitor, a conductivity monitor, a pH monitor and three air sensors. Delivery location is National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases; Bethesda, MD. 20892 and shall be inside delivery. FAR provisions and clauses that apply to this acquisition are 52.212-1, Instructions to Offerors - Commercial Items; FAR 52.212-2, Evaluation - Commercial Items; FAR 52.212.3, Offeror Representations and Certifications - Commercial Items; FAR 52.212-4, Contract Terms and Conditions - Commercial Items; FAR 52.212-5, Contract Terms and Conditions Required to Implement Statutes or Executive Orders - Commercial Items.
