PUBLIC NOTICE OF PROPOSED ACQUISITION
National Eye Institute / National Institute of Health

Announcement/Number:  EE21-004677

Post Date: July 16, 2021

Closing Response Date: July 26, 2021

Proposed Award Date: July 29, 2021

Project Title: 475NM Laser and Accessories

Contracting Office: National Eye Institute, Building 31, Room 6A52

Contact Point/Contracting Officer/Contract Specialist: Elaine  Estrella, estrellaek@mail.nih.gov

North American Classification System (NAICS) Code (include): 334516

Classification Code:  Analytical Laboratory Instrument Manufacturing 

 

BACKGROUND, PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVE:
The goal of the Laboratory of Sensorimotor Research is to understand the fundamental brain mechanisms that allow such sensory-motor coordination. We concentrate on the system within the brain that is probably best understood in the control of such complex activities: the visual/oculomotor system. The purpose of the requirement is to use the retro-grade virus carried with ChR2 Channelrhodopsin (opsin) for the opto-tag. The ChR2 opsin is maximumly activated by blue light with around 470 nm wavelength. The purpose of this requirement is to provide the blue light source.
