Custom designed Zebrafish facilities

From our experience, we understand that the currently available standard Zebrafish facilities often fail to satisfy requirements. This is why we believe in developing customised facilities for your Zebrafish. In our opinion, you know precisely what you want and with our support we can turn your needs and requirements into realistic and functional Zebrafish systems.

30 years of experience

Backed up by our 30 years of experience in designing and constructing aquaculture and aquatic research facilities, our team of aquatic research specialists and technical engineers can design complete facilities (including water preparation units, monitoring and control equipment, etc.) that are user-friendly, easy to use and maintain and have low running costs. ZEBCARE offers the full package; on top of initial layout and well-engineered design, we also supply complete in-house construction to installation, training and maintenance onsite. We are also experienced in renovating existing facilities.

ZEBCARE complete Zebrafish facilities concept

Our ZEBCARE water treatment concept for Zebrafish systems is based on the use of self-cleaning drum filters for mechanical filtration, moving bed and trickling filters for biological filtration and UV-C treatment. The system avoids the use of filter cartridges, dramatically reducing running costs. For specific applications mechanical filtration is achieved using sedimentation filters.

ZEBCARE Zebrafish husbandry systems are equipped with a complete monitoring and control system. Essential water quality parameters, such as pH, temperature and conductivity, and system parameters, such as water flow and pump functioning, are monitored constantly. In case of a deviation from pre-set parameters, the system generates a message to a local alarm system and/or dedicated user. All racks can be equipped with LED lighting, providing optimal lighting for each of the tanks, beneficial for both Zebrafish as well as animal caretakers.

ZEBCARE provides engineering of complete Zebrafish facilities. Complete Zebrafish facilities include, in addition to ZEBCARE Zebrafish systems, a water preparation unit for the incoming water, optional rotifer production and/or Artemia hatching, mass spawning units, benches and tank transport trolleys, wastewater treatment unit (preventing GM organisms escaping the facility) and all necessary small equipment (nets, tanks, spare parts, etc.).

In addition to Zebrafish husbandry systems and facilities, ZEBCARE is very capable of engineering unique set-ups for specific Zebrafish research in close cooperation with the research team.

Together with our customers, ZEBCARE aims to improve Zebrafish husbandry technology and Zebrafish welfare. ZEBCARE works closely with leading research institutes in The Netherlands to develop improved husbandry solutions, tank enrichment and feeding methods.
