Designed specifically for the production of large numbers of zebrafish embryos for drug screening, toxicology assays/experiments or propagation of fish.
Allows for the housing and maintenance of thousands of fish in a single tank, reducing labor required for husbandry and system maintenance.
Multiple spawning sites, adjustable to optimal depths and locations within the tank, maximize embryo production.
Optional light cycle dome with dimmable light cycle timer allows for the collection of embryos at any time of the day.
Carbon filter on incoming water line ensures optimal water quality, reduces possibility of chemical inhibition affecting spawning success and enhances embryo production.
Easily removable egg collection chambers facilitate accurate timing of fertilization with minimal disturbance to fish.
Available in two tank sizes that will fit in the footprint of any rack system.
With the MEPS®, thousands of embryos per day can be attainable and sustainable. Factors affecting embryo production include line, age of fish, sex ratio, degree and quality of broodstock conditioning and management and system maintenance.
Can be incorporated into any multiple rack system.
Can be connected to an AHAB Stand-Alone filtration unit to operate as an independent system.
Can be set up as a flow-through system.
Light cycle dome for photoperiod control.
Volume: 295 L (78 gal) flooded & 242 L (64 gal) operating.
Total weight: 328 kg (723 lbs) flooded & 275 kg (610 lbs) operating.
