The UCL zebrafish facility is currently comprised of
four separate multi-rack systems and several standalone and bench top
systems housed in five separate rooms. The facility currently holdings
around 400 genetically distinct lines - currently approximately 70,000
fish, with a maximum capacity of 100,000 fish.
For further information about the zebrafish facility please follow the link below:
Anatomy Building B03 - 5, 20, 22- 25 and Anatomy Building subbasement
There are 5 rooms, which have been funded The Wellcome Trust, BBSRC and
UCL and have been installed by MBK, Tecniplast, Aquaneering and Pentair.
Between the systems we have a total of about 5,000 tanks - each between 1.5 litres and 10 litres. All the multi-rack systems are re-circulating systems that are fully quarantined (all lines have been established from bleached eggs).
