Thermo Fisher Scientific this week announced the launch of the Thermo Scientific Cellomics ZebraTox v3.0 BioApplication. This technique, coupled with the Thermo Fisher Cellomics ArrayScan VTI system, provides a new solution that automates the imaging and quantitation of zebrafish (Danio rerio) embryos after a toxic insult.

The ZebraTox BioApplication assesses the size, shape, and curvature of zebrafish embryos two or three days post fertilization and after a toxic insult. Configurable to use unlabelled or fluorescently-labeled transgenic zebrafish embryos, the user can array the embryos in a 96- or 384-well format, then automatically image and quantitate features related to morphology.
