No instrument of equivalent scientific value to the foreign instrument, for such purposes as these instruments are intended to be used, was being manufactured in the United States at the time the instruments were ordered. Reasons: Each foreign instrument is an electron microscope and is intended for research or scientific educational uses requiring an electron microscope. We know of no electron microscope, or any other instrument suited to these purposes, which was being manufactured in the United States at the time of order of each instrument. Dated: February 26, 2010. Christopher Cassel, Director, Subsidies Enforcement Office, Import Administration. Germany. Intended Use: See notice at 75 FR 3895, January 25, 2010. Reasons: The instrument must be able to perform using lasers with both continuous wave (CW) and pulsed mode. The use of picoseconds pulsed lasers is necessary to measure fluorescence lifetime. The use of CW lasers, so that the fluorophores will be continuously excited, is necessary to measure fluorescence intensity. The driver that controls the laser head provides user-selectable pulsed repetition rates. This instrument is unique in that it is capable of pulsed interleaved excitation (PIE)— Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) and of allowing repetition rates to be continuously varied down to the 200 kHz range. Furthermore, the instrument is compatible with atomic force microscopy by using objective scanning mode rather than sample scanning mode so that the sample-scanning Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) can be added to the microscope in a future upgrade. We know of no Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging Microscopes being manufactured in the United States at the time of order of this instrument. Dated: February 26, 2010.
