HIGH-DIMENSIONALITY COLORIMETRIC ARRAYS FOR MICROBIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL DETECTION-IDENTIFICATION

Department of National Defence | Published December 20, 2016  -  Deadline October 1, 2017

Trade Agreement: NONE Tendering Procedures: All interested suppliers may submit a bid Competitive Procurement Strategy:  Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No Nature of Requirements:   1. TITLE  HIGH-DIMENSIONALITY COLORIMETRIC ARRAYS FOR MICROBIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL DETECTION-IDENTIFICATION  2. SECURITY REQUIREMENTS  There is no security requirement applicable to the Contract.  3. REQUIREMENT  Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC)  Suffield Research Centre (SRC) has an opportunity to develop and exploit an inexpensive and versatile detector, based on high-dimensionality colorimetric arrays, essentially a test panel of responsive indicators arranged on a disposablefilter paper fragment. The chemical nature of the responsive indicators is such that within a selection of 50-100 such indicators, millions of unique responses are possible, and unknown compounds will cause an unpredictable, but reproducible response. DRDC intends to collaborate on the development of such a device, by building a comparator library of known samples, against which unknowns can be tested.     To this end, DRDC SRC has been exploring the utility of non-electronic passive sensors for volatile organic compounds (VOC). VOC may be produced by bacterial cells in culture or chemical compounds in the environment.  The sensors are generally described as having multiple differentially responsive elements (10-100), having a response profile predominantly in the range of visible light, in a small array (less than 10 cm2 in size, printed onto paper or membrane surfaces). Alternative small formats would be acceptable (e.g. plastic surfaces, stiffened membranes). The intended use of the arrays is inavariety of holders or vessels, which may be used to grow or capture various unknowns. The main challenge of such a system is the ability to rapidly analyse and interpret the response of the array to any exposure. It is anticipated that the array provider will also have analytical tools either ready to use, cloud based, or in prototype.  4. PERIOD OF THE CONTRACT  The estimated period of the contract is from date of award to March 31, 2019  5. EVALUATION AND SELECTION  Mandatory technical evaluation criteria are included in Annex D.  A bid must comply with the requirements of the bid solicitation and meet all mandatory technical evaluation criteria to be declared responsive. The responsive bid with the lowest evaluated price will be recommended for award of a contract.  6. OWNERSHIP OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY  Any intellectual property arising from the performance of the Work under the Contract will vest in the Contractor.  Delivery Date: Above-mentioned  The Crown retains the right to negotiate with suppliers on any procurement.  Documents may be submitted in either official language of Canada.

Vendor must supply software upgrades free of charge for a full year after installation.   Inorganic Crystal Structure Database (ICSD) perpetual license (not required to be renewed annually) database, latest release, single license, must be included.     Crystallography Open Database (COD) to be included.  Installation:  Installation must be completed by vendor employed service technician (not 3rd party) and must comply with Canadian Standards Association (CSA) codes and standards.  Training: A minimum of two (2) days on-site training must be provided for up to six (6) people within 90 days of installation. Training must be simultaneous (i.e. up to six people will be trained during one training session by a factory applications scientist). Training must include how to change detectors, how to power up and down the instrument, how to load and collect data from different samples, including how to run the automatic sample changer, how to use the instrument software to collect and process data, and how to search/match diffraction data for qualitative phase identification using the COD, ICDD PDF-2 and/or PDF-4 databases.  Mobility: Removable handles must be included to allow the user to attach handles on each side of the enclosure cabinet to easily pick up and move the system from the benchtop to mobile cart or to place in shipping crate.   System Warranty: Must include a minimum of one (1) year warranty on the entire XRD system, including chiller and computer software, will be included. Warranty will cover all parts and labour, including all travel costs.  Service Contract: An additional one (1) year service contract providing coverage for the 12 months after the one year warranty period has expired must be included.  The service contract must be for on-site service (72 hour on-site response) and cover all parts and labour, including all travel costs and one (1) Preventive Maintenance with Technical Telephone Support during business hours, 8 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday CST (service contract does not cover peripheral equipment such as x-ray tubes, sample holders and standalone computer).  4. Applicability of the trade agreement(s) to the procurement   This procurement is subject to the following trade agreement(s): o Canadian Free Trade Agreement (CFTA) o North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)  5. Justification for the Pre-Identified Supplier   Rigaku Americas Corporation is the only manufacturer that can provide a portable benchtop x-ray diffraction (XRD) system that has the capability to analyze different sample types (/formats), including : single large bulk, multiple smaller bulk automatically and multiple micro automatically.  There are two modes of analysis: (a) bulk sample and (b) capillary (micro).  For (a), the bulk analysis must have two modes: large single sample and smaller samples (e.g., size of a quarter).  For the bulk sample size, the instrument must allow the analysis of single samples up to 25 x 120 x 110 mm (H x W x L).  The system must also have an automatic sample changer for analysis of smaller bulk samples (ref. size of a quarter).  Micro samples, analyzed via capillary, must also have an automatic sample changer.  6. Government Contracts Regulations Exception(s)   The following exception(s) to the Government Contracts Regulations is (are) invoked for this procurement under subsection 6(d) - "only one person is capable of performing the work".  7.
