Short description of the contract or purchase(s)
The Norwegian Veterinary Institute invites tenderers to an open tender contest for the procurement of a radiation machine that can be used to irradiate biological material without using radioactive isotope.
Contracting authorities The Norwegian Veterinary Institute, business registration number 970 955 623, Post Box 750, Sentrum 0106, Oslo.
Description of the entity:
The Norwegian Veterinary Institute (VI) is a biomedical research institute with animal health, fish health and food safety/animal feed safety as its core areas.
The most important areas of activity for the Norwegian Veterinary Institute are research and development, stand-by, diagnostics, monitoring, reference functions, advice and risk assessments.
The Norwegian Veterinary Institute shall have a free and independent position in all professional questions.
The Norwegian Veterinary Institute is the authorities' most important knowledge provider for the prevention, advice, clarification and handling of serious infectious diseases in fish and animals and zoonosis. The Norwegian Veterinary Institute also assists in the prevention and handling of crises caused by health hazardous connections and infectious substances in animal feed and food.
The Norwegian Veterinary Institute also provides services and communicates knowledge to businesses, professionals and animal owners.
The Norwegian Veterinary Institute has 320 employees, with its main office in Oslo and regional laboratories in Sandnes, Bergen, Trondheim, Harstad and Tromsø.
The aim of the procurement.
Research at the Norwegian Veterinary Institute is carried out on many levels. An understanding of cellular and molecular processes is an important part of this. In order to grow cells optimally over time we have used so-called support cells or feeder cells. In order to ensure that the support cells do not continue to divide, their DNA is damaged by using either chemical methods such as Metomomycin C or by irradiation. Access to Cesium isotope irradiation machines which gave gamma radiation was easier before. This has now been stopped and we must use irradiation machines that generate and irradiate the research material with x-rays. The Norwegian Veterinary Institute needs a irradiation machine that can irradiate:
— Cell cultures;
— Blood bags/buffycoat;
— Irradiation of rodents for some animal experiments such as transplantations, cancer models etc.;
— Potentially infectious biological material in the form of blood sample glass, tissue samples.
The idea is that biological material with an unknown bio-risk degree can be irradiated and thereby seen as safer to work with and biological markers such as protein epitope and DNA sequences can be detected.
All communication between the Tenderer and the Contracting Authority shall be directed to the Contracting Authority's contact person via the ‘question and answer’ function in our electronic tender system.
All questions and answers will be made accessible in anonymous form for all of the tenderers.
Enquiries received after the deadline for questions will not be answered.
Deadline for asking questions: 10.11.2015.
