The National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), intends to procure a name brand or equal specialized piece of equipment: (1) Beckman Coulter A53879 DelsaNano-HS Zeta Analyzer. The system is needed for the characterization and physicochemical determination of high density lipoproteins (HDL) in cardiovascular disease. Requirements: This instrument must be capable of making static and dynamic light scattering measurements, as well as absolute size exclusion chromatography (ASEC) and electrophoretic light scattering measurements for determining size, distribution, molecular weight and zeta potential in the same instrument. For our specific needs this instrument must use a high sensitivity PMT photo detector (Counts photons for detection of low amounts of weak scattering protein particles). Minimum specifications: Size Range: 0.6 nm - 6Ám Zeta Potential Range:-0.6nm - 30Ám Concentration Range: 0.001ppm - 40%* flow capable (FPLC) Dual 30 mW laser Sample concentration ranging from 0.001 % to 40%-no more dilution necessary to perform zeta potential analysis on most samples than to the Forward Scattering through Transparent Electrode Technology (FST)* Zeta potential of solid flat surfaces Use CONTIN, NNLS and Marquardt including Cumulants diameter Smolochowski, Ruckel and other algorithms. Can measure proteins: Molecular Weight: 103- 3 x 107Daltons Electrophoretic mobility::f 1.2 x i 0-3cm2N.s Voltage Range: 0-300 V 1 ppm to 40% Up to 200 mS/cm Size: 30 flL minimal volume Equivalent offers shall provide complete specifications and/or descriptive literature for any alternates offered, stating catalog number, manufacturer, packaging. Offerors are requested to indicate any differences from the specifications listed. Failure to provide complete information may cause offer to be non-responsive Warranty period MUST be specified with months, including parts, labor and travel All offers must be F.O.B. destination Any shipping charges must be identified and listed on the response for evaluation. Partial offers will not be accepted. This request is for interested firms with the capability of providing a quote for an equal or compatible item listed above The intended procurement will be classified under North American Industrial Classification (NAICS) code 334516 with a size standard of 500 employees. SOURCES SHALL PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION IN THEIR RESPONSE: Company name, address, phone number, primary contact(s), e-mail address, NAICS code(s), business size (i.e., small/large) and DUNS number. Vendors may identify in writing their interest and capability in response to this requirement or submit a quote/proposal. All responses received before the closing date of this announcement will be considered by the Government. Vendors who believe they can provide the requirement may submit written notification to the Contracting Specialist "No Later Than" 12:00 AM, EST, July 23, 2010 Responses may be emailed to ryan.pike@nih.gov or faxed to: (301)480-3338 to the attention of Ryan Pike, by the deadline stated above. All vendors are hereby notified that if your quote is not received by the date/time and location specified in this notice, it will not be considered. All quotes shall be clearly marked with: Reference Number NHLBI-PB-(HL)-2010-240-RTP. This synopsis/solicitation is distributed solely through the Federal Business Opportunities website at www.fedbizopps.gov. All future information concerning the acquisition, including amendments, will be distributed solely through the website. Interested parties are responsible for monitoring this site to ensure you have the most up-to-date information about this acquisition. PLEASE, NO PHONE INQUIRES. The contract vehicle will be a Firm Fixed price order.
