Zebra fish facility

The Zebrafish facility is housed in NUCSER and is designed to model rare genetic human diseases in a zebrafish model.
  • The zebrafish facility comprises a completely automated, state- of- the- art re-circulatory system imported from Tecniplast, Italy. The unit involves a multilinking system capable of housing zebrafish in different sizes of tanks ranging from 1.1 litres to 3.5 litres capacity with an automated water treatment unit, that includes a fine mechanical filter, carbon filtration and high UV disinfection.
  • The current facility has two multilinking racks with 6 tiers each capable of accommodating 120 rearing tanks
  • The facility presently houses wildtype as well as a variety of transgenic and mutant zebrafish lines.

CRG.BMD Biorepository

  • The CRG>BMD bio-repository has been planned as a best practice operative. Informed consent for collection of all bio-specimens will be obtained (see Documents and MoU) according the the Study Protocol previously approved by the IRB of NITTE DU, or the Institution/Hospital where samples will be collected
  • With bio-specimen collection ongoing for rare genetic and bone marrow failure syndromes, the following patient samples will be bar-coded and archived for analysis:
    • Blood
    • Genomic DNA
    • Total RNA
  • All barcoded specimens will be stored in a specific traceable location in a specifically designated -80 deg C freezer
  • The Privacy of each patient will be strictly maintained
  • Sample specimens will be shared with collaborators responsible for depositing the samples in the CRG.BMD Bio-repository, upon written request
  • Samples requested by other Researchers will need approval from CRG.BMD as well as Collaborators responsible for depositing the sample in the CRG.BMD Bio-Repository

Bringing together clinicians and researchers under one platform to improve clinical therapies and outcomes for the patients.
