Noldus tools for
The zebrafish (Danio rerio) is a popular model organism due to its size, reproduction and growth rate, cost effectiveness but also a genetic homology of about 70% with humans.
Treatments for neurodevelopmental disorders, such as epilepsy, muscle disorders, senescence and ALS have been studied using zebrafish. Also in the field of ecotoxicology, the zebrafish is an extremely popular model organism.
Noldus offers a wide array of solutions for research in zebrafish. As experts in (behavioral) neuroscience we can help you to advance your research.
Video tracking recognizes your zebrafish (adult or larva) from a life video feed or video file and is able to track its movement or activity.
Screening compounds benefits greatly from 96-well plate setups, as this allows for high-throughput testing.
Studies using zebrafish models for fear and anxiety related disorders and behavior often focus on bottom dwelling and tank diving.
Larvae activity patterns can reveal information on stereotypic and epileptic behaviors, circadian rhythmicity, movement disorders, and much more.
Zebrafish are an interesting model for studying psychiatric disorders that affect social behavior, such as schizophrenia and autism.
The learning capabilities of zebrafish have been well-characterized in research.
Application of optogenetic stimulation in zebrafish larvae does not require fiber optics, but it does require the correct wavelength (color) of light.
The aquatic cross maze is a multifunctional maze for zebrafish learning, memory testing, and social preference.
Our products for zebrafish research
EthoVision XT is the most widely applied video tracking software that tracks and analyzes the behavior, movement, and activity of any animal.
Looking for a zebrafish larvae research tool? DanioVision is the complete system designed for high-throughput tracking of zebrafish larvae and other small organisms.
Measure zebrafish embryo and larvae parameters such as embryo activity, cardiovascular measurements, morphology, and gut and blood flow.
"DanioVision allows an easy solution to monitor and quantify physical activity and swimming behaviour in a large number of larvae simultaneously."

Check out this white paper written in collaboration with Prof. Donald Wlodkowic, an expert in eco-neurotoxicology from the RMIT University in Melbourne Australia. Here we dive into the topic of contaminated surface and drinking water, and how we use the latest technology to investigate the neurotoxic and/or neuromodulating effects of these contaminants.
