The Division of Allergy and Immunological Transplantation of the

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), has a

requirement for the acquisition, storage (in frozen state), and

distribution of hybridoma cell lines to scientific investigators and

for the operation of the existing hybridoma data bank to acquire and

disseminate information about the construction of hybridomas on an

international level. The offeror must have the experience to

successfully expand acquired hybridoma lines in continuous culture,

characterize cell lines with respect to viability, productivity, and

absence of microbial contamination, and cryopreserve the lines.  The

offeror must also have experience in shipping frozen biological

material worldwide.  Ability to perform extensive computer literature

searches and to organize, store and make available to investigators

voluminous information about hybridomas is also required.

The NIAID-sponsored project will take approximately five years to

complete.  A cost-reimbursement type contract is anticipated. It is

anticipated that one award will be made.  This is an announcement for

an anticipated Request for Proposal (RFP).  RFP No.
