NCEH is looking to procure mini-pig urine produced using radionuclides administered to the mini-pigs and incorporated into their urine via their natural metabolic processes (i.e., as if by ingestion or inhalation) to support the emergency response method for analysis of urine for Polonium-210 content.
A total of twelve or more liters is required, with radionuclide concentration averages specified in the solicitation.
The Period of Performance is estimated to be 90 days from the date of award.
