    Zebrafish solutions

DanioVision is the complete system designed for experiments with zebrafish larvae. It is for anybody performing research in drug development, safety pharmacology, behavioral genetics, circadian rhythmicity and related research areas.

DanioScope is the premier software tool to investigate a scope of zebrafish embryo and larvae parameters. It includes features to measure embryo activity, cardiovascular measurements, morphology, and gut and blood flow.

EthoVision XT is the world's most used video tracking tool, as well as a software platform to build your set-up on. Video tracking essentially means that EthoVision XT recognizes your zebrafish (adult, larva or embryo) from a life video feed or video file and is able to track its movement or activity.

Track3D is a video-based system for automated tracking of animals in a three-dimensional space. It allows the researcher to record the movement of an animal in a test chamber, visualize the resulting trajectory in a three-dimensional image and calculate a number of movement parameters.

Dr. Ruud van den Bos talks about his work in neurobiology and experimental psychology, and how zebrafish studies contribute to his field of research. He is experienced with DanioVision and EthoVision XT, and explains why good tools are important for reliability and reproducibility in zebrafish experiments.

Neurobiology and behavior

The zebrafish has become an important vertebrate model to study (developmental) neurobiology and behavior, not in the least because of recent improvements in transgenic, optogenetic and imaging techniques, and behavioral assays.

 

Toxicology

To protect human health, wildlife, and the environment, the effects of naturally occurring and synthetic contaminants need to be monitored. In particular, mechanisms through which toxins cause disease are often poorly understood. Zebrafish are valuable in these types of studies for many reasons.

 

Translational research

Researchers have unraveled the molecular basis of many human disorders, and a very large part (over 80 percent) of the genes we know to be associated with human disease (e.g. Parkinson’s and addiction) have homologues in zebrafish.
