II.2.4) Description of the procurement
A state-of-the art optical coherence tomography system is required at the Centre for Continuous Manufacturing and Crystallisation (CMAC) in Glasgow. The instrument is required to conduct measurement on a range of different pharmaceutical materials, with the ability for high throughput, and the inclusion of integrated software for analysing the data.
The optical coherence tomography (OCT) system must have the capability of being used in a 1D, 2D and 3D mode.
The core requirements of the instrument are detailed below:
- Centre wavelength: 850 - 1000 nm
- Axial resolution: < 5 µm
- A-scan rate: > 150 kHz
- Sensitivity (at 5 kHz acquisition rate): 90 dB
- 3D scanner with lateral resolution of < 10 µm
- Exchangeable scan lenses to change the focal length (e.g. from ~20 mm to ~50 mm)
- Integrated software:
Scan position control (lateral size of scan).
Access to raw data (spectra) and processed data (A-scans).
Acquisition control including scan averaging and scan speed.
Visualisation of raw data (e.g. spectrum), A-scans (1D) and B-scans (2D) in real-time.
3D visualisation of data including rendered volumes and sectional views.
Continuous acquisition of A-scans for process monitoring.
Exporting of data.
Please note, all detail relating to the procurement can be found with the Invitation to Tender (ITT) documents issued via PCS Tender.
