Federal Business Opportunities (FBO) SOURCES SOUGHT NOTICE � Solicitation Number: NIMH20004362 � Title:� Brainsight Neuronavigation System � Classification Code:� 66 -- Instruments & laboratory equipment � NAICS Code:� 334516 � Analytical Laboratory Instrument Manufacturing Description:� � 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. 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 2020 NIMH Strategic Plan for Research�s top goal is to �define brain mechanisms underlying complex behaviors�. The goal of the study entitled, �Role of GABAergic transmission in auditory processing in Autism Spectrum Disorder� is to define the brain mechanism underlying a core behavioral deficit of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), language processing through an experimental therapeutics approach.� As there is significant inter-individual variability in the optimal region to modulate language processing in ASD, the Brainsight System described will allow for individualized targeting. The individual�s functional and structural brain MRI will be uploaded into the system and be used to target the transcranial magnetic stimulation to a precise, individualized brain region. Rogue Research, Inc is the sole source of this device (see attached sole source letter). Purpose and Objectives: The Brainsight Neuronavigation System is needed to support the Study entitled, �Role of GABAergic transmission in auditory processing in Autism Spectrum Disorder� in order to precisely target the TMS to the MRI-defined individualized region of the brain as defined by the protocol. The Brainsight sytem is compatible with the MagVenture TMS Device that is also being requested for use in the same study. The system includes all software, hardware, as well as a subject chair with coil support arms. Project requirements: The Contractor shall provide one (1) Brainsight Neuronavigation Software System (Brand Name) or equal to the following specifications: Items supplied: ������������ Brainsight Neuronavigation Software for TMS w. 5 years of updates ������������ Northern Digital Polaris Vicra, Pwr supply & cables ������������ Camera Stand for Vicra ������������ Complete Tracker Kit (pointer, coil tracker, subject tracker, calibration tool, subject head tracker elastic band, subject tracker glasses, 1 coil tracker fixation adapter, 1 coil calibration jig, 3 extra reflective spheres) ������������ Apple iMac Computer (16.0GB RAM, Intel Quad Core processor, 27"" Display) ������������ I/O box w. 2 TTL trigger inputs one switch compatible input & 2 channel MEP amplifiers ������������ Subject Chair o����������� Rotating & height adjustable o����������� Fully upright or reclined o����������� Integrated leg supports o����������� Retractable arm rests o����������� 2 Adjustable accessory arcs o����������� 2 Articulated coil arms o����������� Left-right reversible chin and forehead rest Salient characteristics Incorporation of the most state-of-the-art current modelling software to estimate magnetic and electrical current strength and trajectories. Automatic curvilinear reconstruction, skin reconstruction, multiple overlays, and easy interface with TMS equipment; A computer is provided with the added capability of acquiring 2 channels of EMG data from built-in EMG amplifiers for precise motor threshold determination.� Portability. This device fits on a wheeled cart suitable for easy and safe transport from the storage space to the exam room where it will be used. The Brainsight System includes a comfortable, adjustable, rotating procedure chair, with integrated leg supports, retractable arm rests, and articulated arms to hold the TMS coil. � Anticipated Period of Performance: Deliver 30 days after award Capability statement /information sought: Contractors that believe that they possess the ability to provide the required equipment, should submit documentation on their ability to meet each of the project requirements to the Contract Specialist. The Contractor should directly and specifically state in the, capabilities statement, which project requirements can be meet and/or supplied. The Contractor must also provide their� DUNS number, organization name, address, point of contact, and size and type of business (e.g., 8(a), HubZone, etc., pursuant to the applicable NAICS code and any other information that may be helpful in developing or finalizing the acquisition requirements. The information submitted must be must be in and outline format that addresses each of the elements of the project requirement and in the capability statement /information sought paragraphs stated herein.� A cover page and an executive summary may be included but is not required. The response is limited to two (2) page limit.� The 2-page limit does not include the cover page or executive summary. The response must include the respondents� technical and administrative points of contact, including names, titles, addresses, telephone and fax numbers, and e-mail addresses. All responses to this notice must be submitted electronically to the Contract Specialist.� Facsimile responses are NOT accepted. The response must be submitted to Thien Nguyen, Contract Specialist, at Thien.Nguyen2@nih.gov. The response must be received on or before July 10, 2020 at 12 pm, Eastern Time. � �Disclaimer and Important Notes:� This notice does not obligate the Government to award a contract or otherwise pay for the information provided in response.
