Zebrafish (Danio rerio) is considered to be a rapid, low-cost and high-throughput model system for drug, biologicals, chemicals, nanomaterial safety/toxicity screening, as well as for basic scientific research of human diseases.

We have a fully functional facility for zebrafish maintenance, reproduction and research. We test selected substances following OECD guidelines, as well as their effect on apoptosis and autophagy, oxidative stress and mitochondrial function using live-cell dyes and imaging with confocal microscopy, western blotting and immunostaining.
