Imaging Facilities

The development of zebrafish with specific tissues or organs of interest marked as fluorescent enhances the study of the zebrafish’s embryology, which is already highly visible due to the transparent embryos.

The Otago Zebrafish Facility stocks several lines of fluorescent zebrafish, where different tissues are marked green (GFP) or red (RFP). These can then be studied under the OZF’s suite of imaging equipment which currently includes the following:
