This is a Sources Sought notice. This is NOT a solicitation for proposals, proposal abstracts, or quotations. The purpose of this notice is to obtain information regarding the availability and capability of all qualified sources to perform a potential requirement. For equipment/supply requirements, responses must include: (1) the place of manufacturing (i.e. address if supply/equipment is a domestic end product and include country of manufacture), as well as (2) the size status of the manufacturer under the applicable NAICS code (i.e. address Non-Manufacturer Rule). This notice is issued to help determine the availability of qualified companies technically capable of meeting the Government requirement and to determine the method of acquisition. It is not to be construed as a commitment by the Government to issue a solicitation or ultimately award a contract. Responses will not be considered as proposals or quotes. No award will be made as a result of this notice. The Government will NOT be responsible for any costs incurred by the respondents to this notice. This notice is strictly for research and information purposes only. Background: The National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) develops new candidate drugs for individuals with rare and neglected disease, and HEAL and APP projects. NCATS’ facilitates drug discovery from the basic research lab to the pre-clinical stage, concentrating its efforts on the pre-clinical stage of drug discovery and development. In doing so, NCATS will help bridge the wide gaps in time and resources that often exist between basic research and clinical testing of new drugs. Liquid Chromatography (LC) and Mass Spectrometry (MS) capability is required in order to conduct the necessary comprehensive pharmacokinetic (PK) analysis of drug candidates. The LC-MS instrumentation will allow the Drug Metabolism & Pharmacokinetics Core Lab to further characterize drug candidates’ ADME properties. The procurement of the LC-MS instrumentation will bring the Drug Metabolism & Pharmacokinetics Core Lab up to current standards which will provide the group with more accurate and reliable results. Purpose and Objectives: Trade in of Xevo TQ-S and Exion UPLC for ADME. To replace and trad-in the 10 yrs old Waters UPLC-MS/MS instrument with a new unit. This instrument is used daily in the lab to quantify drug concentrations in biological samples collected from pharmacokinetic studies. The salient physical, functional, or performance characteristics that “equal” products must meet are specified in the purchase description below. Purchase Description: Waters Xevo TQ Absolute w/ Acquity Premier and Andrew+ Robot Procurement Salient characteristics: The following salient characteristics are necessary for the requested supplies: All components of the system and software shall be manufactured and serviced by the same company/organization. In order to conduct the proper PK analyses of drug candidates in various matrices and improve sample recovery, the UPLC system must have the following capabilities: • Shall have biocompatible and inert, including High Performance Surfaces (HPS) Ultra-Performance Liquid Chromatography sample introduction systems to include pumps with integrated degassers, flow through needle autosamplers, and column compartments. This will improve separation and detection of metal-sensitive analytes by mitigating non-specific binding. Such analytes include organophosphates, oligonucleotides, peptides, and phospholipids. This will improve the detection of previously undetected analytes and increase efficiency by eliminating time consuming system and column passivation. • The sample manager shall be able to accommodate at least ninety six (96) of the standard 2-mL vials or >2 microplates (96 or other wellplates), and be optionally extended to accommodate a total of 21 well-plates. The sample manager must have primary and secondary fluidic paths that are made of biocompatible and inert materials including HPS. • The column manager compartment shall support independently controlled temperature zones for each of the individual columns and the flow path must have HPS technology (or equivalent) as found in the MaxPeak HPS columns. • Shall be able to support eCord Technology which documents the methods and usage of Acquity UPLC columns, up to 50 sample sets, the minimum and maximum pressure and temperature, sample and injection totals for the column can be stored and accessed using Acquity UPLC system console software. The eCord must be part of each individual column for traceability. • The software: Shall run on Windows 10 operating systems. Shall provide a single point of control for all of the LC/MS/MS system’s components, features, and functionality and allow data processing concurrent with sample analysis. Shall be able to run at the same time as other programs on the computer such as Spreadsheet software. In order to conduct the proper chemical analyses of drug candidates in various matrices and offer the lowest limits of detection possible the mass spectrometer system must have the following capabilities: • The mass spectrometer MRM sensitivity (ESI+) for a 1 pg on-column injection of reserpine must give a chromatographic signal-to-noise greater than 3,000,000:1, using raw unsmoothed data (Gradient separation, LC mobile phase flow rate of 0.6 mL/min, MRM transition m/z 609 > 195). The Instrument Detection Limit (IDL) from ten replicate injections must be calculated to be less than 0.2 fg reserpine • The mass spectrometer MRM sensitivity (ESI-) for a 1 pg on-column injection of chloramphenicol must give a chromatographic signal-to-noise greater than 3,000,000:1, using raw unsmoothed data (Gradient separation, LC mobile phase flow rate of 0.8 mL/min, MRM transition m/z 321 > 152). The Instrument Detection Limit (IDL) from ten replicate injections must be calculated to be less than 0.2 fg chloramphenicol • The mass spectrometer should have width of less than 450 mm to allow use in the laboratory where space is limited. • The mass spectrometer system power consumption (including the mass spectrometer, rough pump and data system) should be less than 2000 W during routine use to reduce heat production and lessen the air conditioning burden on the laboratory. • The mass spectrometer must have UniSpray Ion Source capabilities. This atmospheric pressure ion source provides increased ionization efficiency and desolvation characteristics compared to ESI as well as a broader compound coverage than either ESI, APCI or APPI alone. This is important for detection of difficult analytes. • The mass spectrometer must have a mass range of 2 to 2,048 m/z. • The software: Shall run on Windows 10 operating systems. Shall provide a single point of control for all of the LC/MS/MS system’s components, features, and functionality and allow data processing concurrent with sample analysis. Shall be able to run at the same time as other programs on the computer such as Spreadsheet software. In order to improve sample preparation by reducing human error and offering greater flexibility of an automation device the pipet robot must have the following capabilities: • The pipet robot must have the ability to be placed into a laminar flow hood or biosafety cabinet to support use under sterile conditions. The robot must have dimensions of 42” W x 24” H x29” D when not in use to accommodate space requirements for storage. • The pipet robot must be remote controllable be able to be used with any PC or laptop and viewable with a web browser. • The pipet robot’s liquid handling capabilities need to support a range 0.2uL to 10mL to accommodate diverse sample preparation needs. It must also support Bluetooth-enabled electronic pipettes sourced from Sartorius.
