      4. Description of the procurement:

        The University of Edinburgh invites competitive tenders for supply, installation, initial training and technical services for a High-Pressure Freezer for the vitrification of soft and biological materials for imaging in separate cryo-FIB-SEM system.

        We intend to procure this equipment in order to rapidly vitrify and preserve the internal micro-structure of large samples (to depths 200 µm or more). These materials will include soft materials (e.g. colloidal suspensions, emulsions, surfactants and polymers) and biological systems. After high-pressure freezing, samples will be loaded into a Quorum PP3010T Cryo-stage for freeze fracturing, sputter coating and FIB-SEM imaging, and thus the sample holders must be compatible with this system. This equipment will be part of a shared, multi-user facility, and hence ease of use and the ability to freeze and sort multiple samples is highly desired.
