II.1)Scope of the procurement

Supply of a Fourier Transform Infra-Red Spectroscopy (FTIR) Imaging Microscope Instrument

Reference number: JRC/IPR/2018/F.2/0029/OC
II.1.2)Main CPV code

II.1.3)Type of contract
II.1.4)Short description:

Micro(nano)-plastics are plastic particles below 5 mm in size originating as manufactured primary particles (e.g printing inks, cosmetics etc.) or secondary particles produced by mechanical or chemical degradation of larger plastic components. A key technology in detecting, identifying and quantifying individual micro-plastic particles is the combination of optical microscopy with chemical imaging analysis by Fourier Transform Infra-Red Spectroscopy (micro-FTIR) and it has been judged necessary to proceed with the purchase of such an instrument for use in the development of this new research area.
