Breeding Zebra fish in Bar-Ilan University

ProfiLux in Genetics Of Musculoskeletal Disease Lab Zebra fish facility


The Zebra fish is a very important and widely-used vertebrate model organism in scientific research. The main reasons for that are its regenerative abilities, its short life cycle and rapid embryonic development, its transparency and above all this, the fact that its genome has been fully sequenced.

GHL products are used for controlling water level, pH, conductivity, and temperature.
The ‘programmable logic’ is used to obtain steady values of pH and conductivity by controlling the dosing pumps using a combination of timers and sensor readings.
Furthermore the Profilux features for automatic water changes, alarms and data logging are in use in this setup.
