Definition of the requirement The Specialty Coatings and Microfabrication Team at NRC-AST-London is expanding new research activities in the area of laser based surface structuring, texturing and polishing of materials. Surface treatment of materials such as metals, ceramics, composites and polymers is widely recognized as the key step to produce enhanced functionality. Laser micro/nano structuring techniques can be used effectively to create black, super-hydrophobic, self-cleaning surfaces, hydrophilic surfaces and to enhance strong, robust and highly predictable bonds between surfaces.  Laser ablation essentially imparts highly precise 2D & 3D topographical micro/nano size features and chemical changes to a surface which can lead to desirable functionalities. Surface properties such as anti-corrosion, anti-icing, drag reduction, friction and wear reduction, stickiness, surface wettability and adhesion strongly depend on the accuracy and metrology of laser machined features. Often, laser texturing of metallic nanoparticles exhibit distinctive optical characteristics, influenced by micro/nano feature shape, size, distribution, host material and design of surface for many products and applications. The main criterion for choosing an integrated optical metrology system for the research and development is the ability to measure geometric quality of micro/nano features with nanometer (nm) resolution (lateral, height), repeatability on large sample surfaces (at least 15 cm x 15 cm), and integrated ability to measure surfaces on a variety of materials (e.g. with reflectivity between 0.05% to 100%) using most appropriate measuring technique.  3. Criteria for assessment of the Statement of Capabilities (Minimum Essential Requirements)  Any interested supplier must demonstrate by way of a statement of capabilities that its equipment meets the following requirements:   Capable of focus variation, confocal microscopy, and interferometry as one single unit  Large 154 mm x 154 mm stage travel/measurement range  Stage capable of holding loads up to 20kg  Capable of stitched multi-field measurements over the travel range  Unique configuration, no moving parts in the optical path enables low noise and high accuracy   The compact micro-display system enables multiple modes to generate a sequence of illumination patterns for confocal images, bright field microscopy, focus variation measurement and with selected objective interferometric measurements. All modes operate with the same illumination source and optical path.  Flexible illumination optionallows sample measurements with low reflectivity and those composed of dissimilar or transparent materials.  Multiple LED light sources (different wavelengths including an integrated ring light)  Optional adjustable column with heights up to 1 meter  Quantitative measurements with immersion objective  Operating software capable of: o ergonomic user-interface for navigation, acquisition, visualization, and analysis of data for separate and/or combined confocal images, bright field microscopy, focus variation measurement and with selected objective interferometric measurements o online video screen for adjustment and viewing of sample in different multiple modes of navigating in X/Y and Z including fast preview pane o screen settings for scanlength, speed, area, and measurement type including programming of stitched measurements for 154 mm x 154 mm stage travel/measurement range o visualization of 3D-Isometric, Contour, Profile, Histogram, Bearing curve etc. including lighting and shadow options, true color rendering when color image is acquired, and linear profile extraction from surfaces o term removal, data filtering, step heights, distance and slopes, data Scaling, Fourier analysis, calculation of shape and roughness parameters according to ASME B46.1 and DIN standards o data export in a variety of formats from image (jpg, pdf) to raw point cloud output and full resolution (16 bit) TIFF format specifically designed for input to laser texture systems o data export into at least oneof CAD formats (e.g., STL).  The ring light can be easily mounted on an objective to increase image data capture through uniform illumination specifically in focus variation mode operation.  4. Applicability of the trade agreements to the procurement The procurement is subject to the following trade agreements:  Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT) World Trade Organization - Agreement on Government Procurement (WTO-AGP) North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)  5. Justification for the Pre-Identified Supplier  The S-Neox 3D optical metrology system is capable of non-contact microscopic surface measurements and characterization.

North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA)  5. Justification for the Pre-Identified Supplier  ECCC currently operates an Agilent 7890/5977 GC-MSD Teledyne Tekmar ATOMX system.  A duplicate system is mandatory in order to be able to meet our laboratorys mandate to maintain accreditation and enforcement criteria. The second ATOMX purge and trap concentrator and autosampler will be dedicated to the analysis of legal samples and therefore must not be altered or used for other analyses in order to preserve the legally defensible quality of the analytical results. The National Laboratory of Environmental Testing (NLET) at ECCC has installed Agilents MassHunter Software onto all of its organic analytical instrumentation. This has streamlined and unified instrument data acquisition and processing and has been optimized so that data files can be directly uploaded into the National Laboratory Information Management System for reporting purposes. To the best of ECCCs knowledge, Agilent Technologies Canada, is the only known supplier that can provide the combination of instrumentation together with the requirement of the specific software.   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 ofperforming the work").   7.

Trade Agreement: WTO-AGP/NAFTA/AIT/Canada FTAs with Peru/Colombia/Panama Tendering Procedures: Generally only one firm has been invited to bid Non-Competitive Procurement Strategy: Exclusive Rights Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement: No Vendor Name and Address:  Agilent Technologies Canada Inc. 6705 Millcreek Unit 5 Mississauga Ontario Canada L5N5M4 Nature of Requirements:   Inductively-Coupled Plasma Triple Quad  Mass Spectrophotometer System (ICP-QQQ-MS)  H4004-163491/A Marshall, Cindy Telephone No. - (905) 615-2077 (    ) Fax No. - (905) 615-2060 (    )  1. An ACAN is a public notice indicating to the supplier community that a department or agency intends to award a contract for goods, services or construction to a pre-identified supplier, thereby allowing other suppliers to signal their interest in bidding, by submitting a statement of capabilities. If no supplier submits a statement of capabilities that meets the requirements set out in the ACAN, on or before the closing date stated in the ACAN, the contracting officer may then proceed with the award to the pre-identified supplier.   2. Definition of requirement  Health Canadas Ontario Health Products Laboratory located in Toronto has a requirement for the provision of an Inductively-Coupled Plasma Triple Quad  Mass Spectrophotometer System (ICP-QQQ-MS) with a High Pressure Liquid Chromatography System (HPLC ICP MS/MS) in accordance with the Specification. The HPLC ICP MS/MS will be operated at Health Canadas Health Products Laboratory, shared with the Food Laboratory, and used to collaborate with Lonqueuil Health Products Laboratory existing equipment and to share methods, SOPs and expertise.  The Tandem ICP-QQQ (triple quad) technology is critical for the provision of a complete range of interference management techniques for characterization and elimination of polyatomic, isobaric, wing overlaps, anddoubly charged interferences in the elemental analysis of our samples.  The instrument will be used to verify compliance of the content of contaminants or toxic metals (Ex: Arsenic, Mercury, Chromium, Cadmium, Lead, etc.) to existing standards (total and species) in complex natural health and pharmaceutical products, separate and analyze minerals and iodine samples.  3. Criteria for assessment of the Statement of Capabilities (Minimum Essential Requirements) Any interested supplier must demonstratebyway of a statement of capabilities that its equipment meets the following requirements:  Mandatory Operational Performance Requirements:  The Ontario Health Products Laboratory and Food Laboratory require an HPLC-ICP-QQQ that meets all of the following specifications:  1 The ICP-MS purchased must be a true triple quad as defined by the international Union of Pure and Applied Chemists (IUPAC).   IUPAC is an international authority in the definition of chemical terminology.   By their  definition,atriple quad is a   tandem mass spectrometer comprising two transmission quadrupole mass spectrometers in series, with a non-resolving (RF only) quadrupole between them to act as a collision cell.       References:  https://www.iupac.org/publications/pac/pdf/asap/pdf/PAC-REC-06-04-06.pdf  & A. K. Shukla, J. H. Futrell. Mass Spectrom. Rev.12, 211 (1993)   2 The ICP-MS system must have a tandem ICP-QQQ (triple quad) configuration which consists of a Collision Reaction Cell between two quadrupole mass filters (QMF), each of 1 amu resolution.  This configuration is critical for the provision of a complete range of interference management techniques for characterization and elimination of polyatomic, isobaric, wing overlaps, and doubly charged interferences in the elemental analysis of our samples.   3 The first filter must only allow a 1 AMU mass range for each analyzed compound to enter into the second filter (Reaction/collision cell).  4 The first QMF preceding the cell, Q1, and the second QMF after the cell, Q2, are independently controlled by system software to permit each and ALL of the following modes of operation: - QQQ operation: Q1 is set to admit only the target precursor ion with 1 amu mass resolution into the cell, and Q2 isset to measure only the product ion with 1 amu mass resolution. - Single Quad mode: Q1 acts as an Ion Guide, allowing all ions to the cell.  -  Precursor Ion Scan: Q2 is set to a single target mass; and Q1 Scans over a defined mass range, with 1 amu mass resolution, to select the precursor ions for entry into the Octopole cell.  -  Product Ion Scan: Q1 is set to allow only the target precursor ion; with 1 amu mass resolution, while Q2 is scanned to measure all the product ions formed in the cell.  -  Neutral Gain Scan: Q1 and Q2 are scanned together, with a user-defined mass difference on Q2, to allow monitoring of product ions from a particular transition for all ions in the Q1 scan range. For example: Q2 scans at Q1 + 16 amu (with Q1 at 1 amu mass resolution) for O-atom addition reactions.   5 The system must have a guaranteed abundance sensitivity specification of 10-10 based on 133Cs+. This specification eliminates bias arising from wing overlaps. This specification is important in the resolution of high bismuth tailing on 208Pb+. Only the QQQ eliminates this interference. Bismuth is found in pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. Pb is regulated by USP <232 233 2232>.  6 The first QMF selects a single mass-to-charge (m/z) ratio before the ions enterthe Collision Reaction Cell. This prevents the admission of co-existing ions from the plasma into the cell which either cause unwanted secondary reactions or interferes with the product.   A quadrupole inside a cell filled by a reactive gas cannot function as a QMF. At best, it functions as a wide band pass or a low mass cut-off which is unable to reject the undesired precursor ions until they traverse a finite distance into the cell, forming reaction products that may interfere with the analyte.  It is therefore imperative that the QMF is under vacuum and situated before the cell.  7 The abundance sensitivity must be 10-10 or better  8 The sensitivity for the following compounds must be achieved in order to obtain the lowest level of detection:  Lithium 200 Mcps/mg/L Ytrium  700 Mcps/mg/L Thallium 400 Mcps/mg/L These sensitivities must be achieved with a Cerium Oxide level of 1.5% or lower  9 The following detection limits must be achieved for the stated integration time per sample  (a)In the no-gas mode (integration time of 3 seconds) Beryllium 0.1   ng/L Indium             0.05 ng/L Uranium 0.05  ng/L  (b) In the reaction mode with Oxygen (integration time of 3 seconds) Sulfur  50 ng/L Phosphorus 50 ng/L.  (c) In Hydrogen mode (integration time of 10 seconds) Selenium 1 ng/L  10 Must have four mass flow controllers, with the provision to add a fifth.  11 The ICP-MS must meet the following performance application specifications, that are relevant to Health Canadas core work: a. The system must be able to analyze 75As+ as 75As16O+ for better detection limits and to avoid interferences from 40Ca35Cl+ and 40Ar35Cl+. The As instrument detection limit (IDL), determined as three times the standard deviation of ten replicate measurements of 500 ppm Ca in 1% HCl, shall be 1 ppt or lower, using an integration time of 0.5s or less. A single-quadrupole ICP-MS using a band pass or a low mass cut-off in the cell cannot remove 56Fe35Cl+ without also removing 75As16O+. Iron (Fe) is ubiquitous and can be present at very high concentrations in pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, and food. Arsenic (As) is regulated by USP <232 233 2232>. b. Remove 1 ppm Mo interference (95Mo16O+) on 111Cd+ to less than 10 ppt 111Cd using an O2 andH2blend, with a 111Cd IDL of 2 ppt or better using an integration time of 0.5s or less. The IDL is defined as three times the standard deviation of ten replicate measurements of 1 ppm Mo under instrument conditions that deliver the low interferences. The first QMF prevents 95Mo+ from entering the cell which would otherwise react with O2 to create MoO. Molybdenum is found in dietary supplements, milk, cheese, cereal grains, legumes, nuts, leafy vegetables, and organ meats. Cd and Mo are regulated by USP<232 233 2232>. c. Remove 2 ppm W interference on 201Hg+ to less than 10 ppt 201Hg using an O2 and H2 blend, with a 201Hg IDL of 3ppt or better using an integration time of 0.5s or less. The IDL is defined as three times the standard deviation of ten replicate measurements of 2 ppm W under instrument conditions that deliver the low interferences. The first QMF prevents W+ from entering the cell which would otherwise react with O2 to create 184W17O+ and 183W18O+ and interfere with 201Hg+.  Tungsten, W,has been found in some rice protein powders up to 10 ppm. Mercury (Hg) is regulated by USP <232 233 2232>. d. The system must be able to analyze mono-isotopic 51V+ as 51V16O+ using O2 in the cell to avoid interferences from 35Cl16O+ and for better detection limits. The V IDL, determined as three times the standard deviation of ten replicate measurements of 2% HCl, shall be 1 ppt or lower, using an integration time of 0.5s or less. A single-quadrupole ICP-MS using a band pass or a low mass cut-off in thecell cannot remove 67Zn+ and 134Ba2+ without also removing 51V16O+. Vanadium (V) is regulated by USP <232 233 2232>. e. The system must be able to analyze 48Ti+ which has about ten times greater sensitivity and lower detection limits than Ti at masses47 and 49. 47Ti+ is interfered by 31P16O+, 49Ti+ is interfered by 24Mg25Mg+, and 48Ti+ is interfered by 24Mg24Mg+ and 48Ca+. By reacting Ti with ammonia, the Ti(NH3) 6+ adduct is measured at mass 150. Interferences on 48Ti+ from 100 ppm P+ shall be 1pptor less, from 100 ppm Mg+ shall be 1ppb or less, and from 100 ppm Ca+ shall be 0.1ppb or less. Titanium (Ti) is found in sunscreens and as a pigment in drug products.  12 The instrument must be coupled with a fully integrated HPLC system.  13 The instrument must have an octopole in the cell portion of the instrument that allows for collision and reaction events.  14 The Collision Reaction Cell has the following properties:  - Accepts up to 4 cell gases, each fully and independently mass flow controlled, and allows mixing of different gases within the cell. - One of these gases must be pure hydrogen, which delivers a guaranteed 1 ppt detection limit for selenium.  The use of pure hydrogen must be supported by the manufacturer.  15 The sampleintroduction system must have an integrated injection flow system with 1 mL sample loop made with Teflon and peek.  16 Must have a reliable on-line internal standard addition capability.  17 Must have an integrated flow injection system or equivalent.  18 The flow injection sample introduction system must have the capability to provide for a 20 second rinse time between samples (at 1 to 3 ml/min of 20% methanol) and 2 minutes of rinse time for 2% nitric acid.  19 The flow injection system tubing and T mixing connectors must not contain any PVC or latex joints.  20 The instrument must be provided with an integrated autosampler with teflon coated carbide probe (ID 0.8 mm)   21 The electronic background must be 0.2 counts per second (cps) or less on Masses 9 and 238.  22 Detector must be EM dual mode detector offering a minimum of 10 orders LDR  23 The total analysis time per sample must not be longer than 5 minutes for a 60 isotope bundle.  24 Must include Software that allows a user to operate the instrument and process data.  25 Must include Training and familiarization for 4 participants.  4.
