Background

The mission of the NVSL DBPL MB Section is to Genotype bacterial pathogens that potentially cause disease in animals. DBPL MB also serves as a reference laboratory and frequently receives bacterial isolates for identification and/or Genotyping. This acquisition allows DBL MB to Genotype bacterial isolates quickly and efficiently. The sooner a pathogen can be Genotyped the faster proper treatment can be given to an animal or herd, steps taken to protect a herd or potential sources of zoonotic infections be determined. Genotyping also helps to eliminate most of the on ground portion of tracing infected herds to an origin of infection. Being able to trace a herds infection by using bacterial snips save millions of dollars per outbreak in random testing in the field. The old method of tracing a source of infection required months of testing in the field to determine the source of infection. Whole Genome Sequencing with an Illumina Miseq Machine has cut that time down to a few weeks and eliminated a large portion of the on ground investigation. Because the procedure is simple and rapid a large number of isolates can be tested in a short amount of time. This is invaluable particularly during an outbreak. If something malfunctions with the Illumina Miseq we must speak to an Illumina technician and possibly have a service call. Having free access to technical support and rapid on-site visits is crucial to fulfilling our mission.

1.2 Objective

We need to have immediate access to technical support and a short turn-around time for service visits if our Illumina Miseq machines are in need of repair.

1.3 Scope of Work

The contractor shall Include full coverage for parts, labor, and travel; Reagent replacement upon hardware failures; 1 preventative maintenance; Remote Technical Support 18x5; 2 business day on-site response target*; control Software and hardware updates; on- site applications support; discounts on advanced training.
