Description

The U.S. Geological Survey, under the Department of the Interior, is seeking to make a non-competitive award to Keyence for the procurement of a digital, fluorescence microscope called RNAScope. This microscope will be used by the Eastern Ecological Science Center for capturing high-resolution, publication-worthy photographs and conducting image analyses for fluorescent methodologies. The ongoing projects at the center require the use of fluorescent in situ hybridization and RNAscope techniques to understand molecular changes associated with disease risk factors and identify viruses and other pathogens in tissues. The desired microscope should be easy to set up and operate, have a built-in darkroom, perform batch-analysis of large data sets, and be fully digitally controlled. Interested parties can submit a bid, proposal, or quotation by January 16, 2024, and all responsible sources will be considered. However, this notice of intent is not a request for competitive proposals. The anticipated award date for the contract is January 20, 2024, and it will be a firm-fixed price contract. Interested vendors must be registered at http://www.sam.gov to be eligible for the contract.
