The Zebrafish model system is becoming increasingly important as a research tool in developmental or genetic studies or experiments that require a large number of individual animals. The Fox Chase Zebrafish Facility provides a state-of-the-art facility to raise and maintain zebrafish, as well as the equipment and training that is essential to perform microinjections. The facility offers services of performing fin clips, one-time-point egg collection (morning only), training in the fish facility, training on the microinjectors and unassisted use of microinjection equipment. 

The microinjection equipment can be reserved electronically by qualified individuals at http://schedulers.fccc.edu/zebrafish/.

All individuals handling zebrafish or the core equipment must be trained by facility staff.
