The National Measurement Institute (NMI) site at North Ryde comprises chemistry laboratories across the Analytical Services Branch (ASB) and the Chemical & Biological Metrology Branch (ChemBio). NMI seeks the supply of laboratory gases and associated services. Additionally NMI requires a supply of bulk liquid nitrogen and liquid argon to meet the laboratories current and likely future needs.
