Equipments Details


AquaCore is housed at the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI) and consists of facilities that host diverse fresh and marine water species.

FishCore is the largest zebrafish facility of its kind in the southern hemisphere. FishCore has 1000 quarantine tanks and 5200 main facility tanks (non-quarantine) and holds more than 100,000 zebrafish. The facility is fully PC2 certified and we house genetically modified and mutant strains of zebrafish to model a variety of human diseases and conditions. Zebrafish are the rising stars of biomedical research and have become a key tool in regenerative medicine research and human disease modelling.
Additional services include phenotyping, micro-injections and a sperm freezing and re-derivation service for any long term storage requirements. The facility has capacity and expertise to house other fresh water species.
