Tools for

Zebrafish video tracking


Zebrafish are still gaining popularity as lab animals - embryos, larvae, and adults. At Noldus we have a wide range of tools for all kinds of behavioral tests for these striped little fish. From software to measure activity, heartbeat, and flow in embryos and larvae, to video tracking the movement of adults in several learning, anxiety, or social behavior paradigms.

 


Neurobiology and behavior

neurology and behavior zebrafish drawing

The zebrafish has become an important vertebrate model to study (developmental) neurobiology and behavior, not in the least because of recent improvements in transgenic, optogenetic and imaging techniques, and behavioral assays.

Toxicology

To protect human health, wildlife, and the environment, the effects of naturally occurring and synthetic contaminants need to be monitored. In particular, mechanisms through which toxins cause disease are often poorly understood. Zebrafish are valuable in these types of studies for many reasons.

Translational research

Researchers have unraveled the molecular basis of many human disorders, and a very large part (over 80 percent) of the genes we know to be associated with human disease (e.g. Parkinson’s and addiction) have homologues in zebrafish.

EthoVision XT | Premium video tracking

The world's most used video tracking tool, as well as a software platform to build your set-up on. Video tracking essentially means that EthoVision XT recognizes your zebrafish (adult or larva) from a life video feed or video file and is able to track its movement or activity.

 
 


daniovision larvae observation chamber

DanioVision | Controlled testing environment

The complete system designed for experiments with zebrafish larvae. It is for anybody performing research in drug development, safety pharmacology, behavioral genetics, circadian rhythmicity and related research areas.

DanioScope | Cardiovascularity and morphology

The premier software tool to investigate a scope of zebrafish embryo and larvae parameters. It includes features to measure embryo activity, cardiovascular measurements, morphology, and gut and blood flow.

Track3D | Three dimensional video tracking

A video-based system for automated tracking of animals in a three-dimensional space. It allows the researcher to record the movement of an animal in a test chamber, visualize the resulting trajectory in a three-dimensional image and calculate a number of movement parameters.

 
 


Customer quote

"Our Noldus EthoVision is awesome. We use it to track zebrafish larvae in live time."

"Zebrafish offer a new opportunity."

Dr. Ruud van den Bos talks about his work in neurobiology and experimental psychology, and how zebrafish studies contribute to his field of research. He is experienced with DanioVision and EthoVision XT, and explains why good tools are important for reliability and reproducibility in zebrafish experiments.

Dr. Ruud van den Bos works for the Radboud University in Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

Tracking zebrafish in 3D

Recognizing the lack of hands-on education, Dr. Kalueff has started organizing zebrafish behavioral neuroscience and phenotyping workshops. The workshops ran just before and after the SfN annual meeting, October 2012.

How zebrafish and optogenetics are great for investigating stress

By this point, we do not need to tell you how popular zebrafish are. We also probably do not need to point out the great technological advances that are being made in research because of the use of optogenetics.
