This announcement constitutes the only solicitation and a separate written solicitation will not be issued. This solicitation: No. N02RC52703-85 includes all applicable provisions and clauses in effect through FAR FAC 2005-83 (August 2015) using simplified procedures for commercial items. This acquisition is a 100% 8(a) small business set-aside. The North American Industry Classification System code is 333415 and the business size standard is 750 employees. Only one award will be made as a result of this solicitation. This will be awarded as a firm fixed price type contract. I. Description of Requirement Flow Cytometric immunophenotyping is standard medical care for patients with hematolymphoid malignancies and therefore a necessary clinical service for NCI patients. The Flow Cytometry Unit in the Laboratory of Pathology is the only NIH laboratory providing standard diagnostic flow cytometric evaluation of neoplastic specimens. In addition the Flow Cytometry Unit provides unique and highly complex flow cytometric testing that is mandated on numerous NCI protocols and is not available at any commercial laboratory or any single academic pathology laboratory. The Flow Cytometry Unit has a very high specimen volume for their resources, receiving the maximum number of daily specimens that can be accommodated by the current staff. On occasion demand exceeds resources and the laboratory must refuse patient specimens. New clinical protocols that mandate flow cytometric testing have started and will increase the demand for flow cytometric testing in the coming years. The laboratory personnel are already working at maximum efficiency and any increase in their workload results in an unacceptable error rate that jeopardizes their ability to provide an accurate diagnosis. In order to meet the increased demand for diagnostic testing without increasing personnel or compromising existing test demand, the laboratory requires two Lyse Wash Assistant robotic systems to perform the duties of an additional part time employee. In addition the lab requires the replacement of two obsolete electronic systems with two FACSCantoII Z230SFF Workstations to increase productivity and provide manufacturer recommended support for the existing two flow cytometers without total replacement of both equipment systems. The proposed purchase of two Lyse Wash Assistants and two FACSCantoII Z230SFF Workstations is an economical and efficient means to acquire what is in essence the assistance of a part time medical technologist to allow the Flow Cytometry Unit to meet the growing needs of NCI protocols while decreasing the cost per unit work. Parts required quantity 2 each: BD Cat. No. 337408 BD FACS Lyse Wash Assistant with Larger Tank Option BD Cat. No. 659712 FACS Canto II Z230SFF Workstation Bundle Warranty Shipping The Salient Characteristics of the Brand name equipment are as follows: • The robotic systems and workstation systems required must be compatible with the NCI owned two BD FACSCanto II flow cytometers. • The Lyse Wash System just process up to 40 samples at a time • The Lyse Wash Assistant carousel must be transferrable directly to the NCI owned BD FACS Canto II Flow cytometers. • Cell Washer technology that eliminates the need to transfer samples to a centrifuge • Custom protocol availability allowing for Users selection of mixing frequency and length, incubation times, wash precipitation, and G force settings • Workstations that integrates via electronic connection to the existing flow cytometers and will replace the existing obselete electronics systems to improve the overall FTE workload capacity via improved instrument performance and workload II. Delivery: Contractor(s) shall deliver the item within 30 days after award to: NIH/NCI Bethesda, Maryland 20892. The Contractor that receives the award will be provided with the complete mailing address and point of contact. Upon delivery, contractor must notify the NCI Contracting Officer's Representative (COR) to schedule the installation date and time. III.
