II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)

UK Biobank has taken samples from 500 000 men and women from the UK population who were aged 40-69 at their baseline assessment visit. In order to enhance further the value of this resource to researchers a wide range of biochemical markers (biomarkers) will be measured in samples collected at baseline from all 500 000 of the participants. Analysis of a core panel of biomarkers on the entire cohort will allow assessment of associations of biomarkers with the risk of disease, improved characterisation of phenotypes and exposures and stratification of the cohort based on biomarker measures.
To complement these aims, biomarkers have been selected for assay either because they are established risk factors for disease (e.g., lipids for vascular disease, sex hormones for cancer), diagnostic measures (e.g., HbA1c for diabetes and rheumatoid factor for arthritis), markers of exposure (e.g., cotinine for tobacco exposure), or characterize phenotypes not otherwise well assessed (e.g., biomarkers for renal and liver function). UK Biobank’s Enhancements Working Group has developed the proposed panel of biomarkers following extensive consultation with relevant experts to identify biomarkers that are likely to be of most scientific relevance for studying a wide range of diseases.
UK Biobank is looking for suitably qualified and experienced providers with the necessary capacity and capability to supply biomarker test reagents and associated instrumentation to test 500 000 samples. The provider will also perform ancillary training, support and maintenance services.
UK Biobank is intending to procure the test reagents and associated instrumentation for 62 different biomarkers. The supply of reagents and instrumentation for each biomarker is to be treated as a separate Lot for the purposes of this procurement. All 62 Lots are the subject of this procurement. Bidders are invited to submit Bids for one or more Lots, and may also submit Bids for all 62 of the Lots.
For each of the Lots, a Bidder may submit a Bid for the supply of reagents and instrumentation, for the supply of instrumentation only or for the supply of reagent only.
The 62 biomarkers making up the 62 Lots are as follows:
