This video provides a brief overview of the zebrafish crossing process that we utilize in-house at InVivo Biosystems
Maintaining water quality is crucial for successful zebrafish maintenance and husbandry, especially during the startup of a fish rack. This video discusses how to keep track of the water quality parameters (ammonia, nitrites, nitrates, and pH), gives an example of how we started our fish rack, and the process of the nitrogen cycle for initial rack set-up.
This video discusses the daily maintenance and upkeep of zebrafish, including keeping track of population health, our daily zebrafish rack checklist (water flow, buffer fills, etc.), and the fishes’ feeding schedule.
InVivo Biosystems, an expert in genetic small animal model creation and in-vivo testing, announced the launch of its new InVivo Longevity Platform to analyze the effects of compounds on lifespan, healthspan, and transcriptional changes related to aging for the burgeoning anti-aging market.
An important, but time-consuming, aspect of zebrafish maintenance and husbandry is the proper cleaning and disinfecting of lab equipment. Tanks should be cleaned every 5-6 weeks — this video walks you through the handling of zebrafish during tank to tank transfers, and the cleaning of the old tank.
