The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention intends to award a sole source firm fixed price purchase order to RJ Lee Group, Inc., 350 Hochberg Road, Monroeville, PA 15146. RJ Lee Group, Inc., will evaluate the physiochemical characteristics of nano reference materials and nano-enabled composite materials. The use of this company is necessary because of the continuity with previous work performed by them on the characterization of similar materials and their ability to provide the combination of scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) for measurement of particle statistics, and high resolution imaging. The STEM microscopes unique to the company allow the on-line alternation of multiple imaging techniques on the same sample. Without the comparable and consistent data that has been collected and analyzed over time, years of research would be jeopardized.
