Zebrafish Facility

The Department houses a state-of-the-art automated zebrafish facility, with water recirculation and filtration systems, for research in various fields such as genetics, developmental biology, and cell biology on different transgenic zebrafish.

The facility is equipped with large-scale breeding and a standalone system for the maintenance of different lines under controlled conditions and allows for continuous monitoring and recording of water quality parameters. The setup includes 5 pairs of separate racks for housing zebrafish lines in special polycarbonate tanks of varying sizes.
