University of California, San Diego; Notice of Decision on Application for Duty-Free Entry of Scientific Instrument

This decision is made pursuant to Section 6(c) of the Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Materials Importation Act of 1966 (Pub. L. 89- 651, 80 Stat. 897; 15 CFR part 301). Related records can be viewed between 8:30 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. in Room 4211, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th and Constitution Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C.

Docket Number: 98-008. Applicant: University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA 92093-0359. Instrument: Imaging Plate X-ray Detector for Protein Crystallography. Manufacturer: MAR Research, Germany. Intended Use: See notice at 63 FR 11870, March 11, 1998.

Comments: None received. Decision: Approved. No instrument of equivalent scientific value to the foreign instrument, for such purposes as it is intended to be used, is being manufactured in the United States. Reasons: The foreign instrument provides:

(1) High efficiency detection of molybdenum K‹greek-a› x-rays at resolution to 0.12nm and (2) exposure time of just 90s allowing use of a single imaging plate under computer control and data readout. The Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory advised April 15, 1998 (1) these capabilities are pertinent to the applicant's intended purpose and (2) it knows of no domestic instrument or apparatus of equivalent scientific value to the foreign instrument for the applicant's intended use.

We know of no other instrument or apparatus of equivalent scientific value to the foreign instrument which is being manufactured in the United States. Frank W. Creel, Director, Statutory Import Programs Staff.
