Zhuhai DL Biotech Co., Ltd    288,000.00    The technical specifications and technical parameters offered by this bidder is determined to be technically non- responsive as below:
Based on a review of the technical brochure and other documents provided by the bidder in the Bid, it was observed that there is no information that indicates that the DL Smart MS model equipment can run 2 target slides in parallel
There is no information on the integration between the equipment model DL Smart MS (for microbial identification) and model DL 96A (for Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing) in the technical brochure and other documents provided by the bidder in the Bid. If the both analyzers cannot be integrated, it will require additional processes to perform the required tests. Errors can occur more frequently in comparison with a fully integrated system
1st brochure of DL-96A attached in the bidding document is different from 2nd brochure of DL-96A requested by the MoH (the 1st brochure stated high efficiency by detecting 90 specimens but 2nd brochure stated high efficiency by detecting 60 specimens.). There is inconsistent information related sample testing capacity for the same model (DL-96A)
Equipment model DL-96A has 3 separate devices (1-Tubidimeter, 2-Auto Sampling instruction (optional), 3-Microbial ID/AST System). Thus, this analyzer needs many additional processes to perform tests and it consumes more time. Therefore, human errors are more likely to occur frequently
In the brochure of equipment model DL-96A, it is mentioned that DL-96A uses ‘specimen’ for its testing process. However, MoH requires the equipment/analyzer that is proposed to be procured be used for testing ‘isolates’ (not ‘specimen’). There is a big technical difference between Specimen and Isolate. Specimen is the initial clinical sample (e.g. blood, urine, sputum ...etc.) but isolate is a concentration of microorganisms that grow in culture media. So, it’s not clear whether the equipment proposed in the bid is for processing of Specimen or Isolate?
Base on a review of the information and documents provided in the Bid, there is no clear evidence to demonstrate that Zhuhai DL Biotech Co., will be able to provide locally (in Cambodia) supporting services and after sales and repair/maintenance services with quick response time. Zhuhai DL Biotech Co., Ltd has indicated the name of a local company registered only in 18 October 2018 for import and export of medical equipment. There is no supporting document related to the agency service agreement between Zhuhai DL Biotech Co., and the local company. Hence spare part stocking with this local entity is not likely. More importantly there is no evidence of the availability of any Zhuhai DL Biotech Co., Ltd factory trained service technicians/engineers in this local Cambodian entity who can provide urgently needed repair/maintenance services for the equipment/analyzers proposed to be supplied. The bid from Zhuhai DL Biotech Co., Ltd indicates that there is a factory trained service engineer based in China. However it is known (from past experiences) that such a China based trained engineer cannot mobilize to Cambodia immediately as and when required, and therefore it is likely that repair/maintenance services whenever required cannot be made available at short notice. Microbiological Analytical equipment systems are, by nature, highly automated and fairly complicated, and there is a high probability that repair/maintenance services will be required frequently. Hence it is concluded that that the bidder fails to meet this important technical requirement in a satisfactory manner which provides the required comfort level to MoH
