The ARMI FishCore facility is the largest zebrafish facility of its kind in the southern hemisphere, consisting of 1000 quarantine tanks and 5200 main facility tanks (non quarantine).
Fishcore houses genetically modified and mutant strains of zebrafish that model a variety of human diseases and conditions. It is an approved QAP quarantine facility for strains that require international importation. As such it can offer a comprehensive importation service relieving researchers of the regulatory requirements and paper work associated with importation. The facility also includes state-of-the-art zebrafish phenotyping and microscope facilities.
Know how:Services includes:
- Training in the use of zebrafish as a research model
- Purchase and agistment of zebrafish strains
- International and interstate importation and AQIS approved quarantining of zebrafish strains
- Exportation of mutant, transgenic and wild type strains of zebrafish
- PC2 breeding of zebrafish
- Zebrafish wild type, transgenic, and mutant embryo production
- Cryogenic freezing and rederivation of zebrafish strains
- Training in the use of the microscopes within the FishCore microscope facility
- Access to FishCore phenotyping microscopes and their injection rigs
