New Product: The Zebrafish Embryonic Genotyper
The Zebrafish Embryonic Genotyper (ZEG) is an automated microfluidic system that extracts genetic material from live zebrafish embryos. The genetic material can then be used for downstream DNA amplification, identification, and analysis. The ZEG has rapid extraction, with 96 embryos being sampled in an hour. Furthermore, the sampling process is non-destructive meaning the embryos can be sampled, and then be raised to adulthood.
We are back from the Holidays for season 2 of 17 Minutes of Science! To kick off the 2021 season we are pleased to be joined by Dr. Jeffrey Noebels from the Baylor College of Medicine. Dr. Noebels uses the mouse model but believes strongly in the benefits of the multiple model approach. His research focuses include gene control of neuronal excitability within the developing mammalian central nervous system, inherited neurological diseases, and epilepsy.
One of our researchers takes a deep dive into the Egg Viability Assay we perform with C. elegans. Check out the post to learn more about the process, the various steps, and the importance of various features of the assay.

Next week on 17 Minutes of Science we will be joined by Christine Kressirer, the senior director of Azzur Cleanrooms on Demand (COD). Christine will be joining us to talk about how Azzur is providing support for every stage of scientific development from discovery to development. Tune in to learn more!.
