Zebrafish for histopathology only
Please submit fish fixed in 10% buffered formalin. To ensure proper fixation, open up the coelom (abdomen). This can be accomplished by making a lengthwise incision through the body wall or by removing a small piece of the body wall. Samples may be shipped at ambient temperatures by overnight courier.
Zebrafish for histopathology and PCR
Please submit fish that have been frozen in liquid nitrogen or at -80°C. Samples should be shipped on dry ice by overnight courier.

Please submit frozen fish with sufficient ice packs to ensure that fish remain frozen during transit. Dry ice is not required.
Zebrafish embryos for PCR
Please euthanize embryos and submit frozen on ice or cold packs. Dry ice is not required.
Live feed cultures for PCR
Please submit at least 1 mL of live feed cultures (e.g., rotifer or Paramecium) frozen on ice or cold packs. Dry ice is not required.
