Zebrafish are known to be an excellent vertebrate model system for biological studies such as genetics and toxicology. Comparative Medicine Resources (CMR) hosts a Core Zebrafish Facility located at Nelson Biological laboratories consisting of six Aquaneering racks and one Tecniplast rack in Smithers Hall for Quarantine imports. Principal Investigators can house their research fish while CMR staff provide exemplary daily husbandry care from larval stage through adulthood. Our goal is healthy and productive research fish for your studies.
The facility has state-of-the-art instrumentation that can be used either directly by users or by facility staff for the analysis of biological samples.Key Resources
