HHS-NIH-NIDA-SSSA-CSS-17-602 COMBINED SYNOPSIS / SOLICITATION COMPETITIVE Title: Glucose Isotopes (i) This is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in Subpart 12.6 as supplemented with additional information included in this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; proposals are being requested and a written solicitation will not be issued. (ii) The solicitation number is HHS-NIH-NIDA-SSSA-CSS-17-602 and the solicitation is issued as a request for quotation (RFQ). This acquisition is for a commercial item or service and is conducted under the authority of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 13-Simplified Acquisition Procedures; FAR Subpart 13.5-Simplified Procedures for Certain Commercial Items; and FAR Part 12-Acquisition of Commercial Items, and is not expected to exceed the simplified acquisition threshold. (iii) The National Institute of Mental Health intends to procure glucose isotopes. NIMH intends to make one award as a result of this solicitation. This award is planned to be firm fixed price contract. (iv) The solicitation document and incorporated provisions and clauses are those in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular 2005-95, dated January 19, 2017. (v) The associated NAICS code 325413, In-Vitro Diagnostic Substance Manufacturing and the small business size standard 1,250 employees. This requirement is full and open with no set-aside restrictions. (vi) MR Spectroscopy Section and Core have been conducting several in vivo carbon-13 (13C) spectroscopy projects on animals and healthy volunteers. Because natural abundance of 13C is only 1%, natural 13C signal is too weak to be detected. Therefore, we need to add 13C enriched chemicals into subjects to increase 13C signal intensity. During the experiments of 13C spectroscopy, solution of 13C enriched chemicals will be infused or orally administrated into subjects. 13C signals of the brain metabolites and the intracellular environment can be measured using in vivo magnetic resonance spectroscopy techniques. In these projects, [2,5-13C] glucose will be used in animal studies, and [2-13C] glucose will be used in human studies. With these 13C labelled chemicals, we will be able to detect brain metabolism and to accurately measure the concentrations of several important metabolites. The purpose is to purchase: [2-13C] glucose [2,5-13C2] glucose (vii) The glucose isotopes must meet the following requirements (salient characteristics): • 500 g of [2-13C] glucose • 15 g of [2,5-13C2] glucose • Shipping & Handling The glucose should be Microbiological & Pyrogen Tested for S. aureus, E. coli, P. aeruginosa, Salmonella. (viii) Delivery within 3 months from date of award.
