ZebraLab : zebrafish video tracking


Complete video tracking system for zebrafish behavior analysis


The analysis of zebrafish activity is extended to a vast number of research applications including safety pharmacology,behavioral genetics, ecotoxicology,circadian rhythmicity. Zebrafish research has come a long way and behavioral study is on the rise as the zebrafish model organism appears to be the most amenable specy to test new therapies. Willing to provide researchers with cutting edge solutions for zebrafish high-throughput screening, ZebraBox combined with ZebraLab software is today the most integrated high-throughput analysis tool for measurement of locomotion in adult zebrafish, zebrafish larvae and zebrafish embryos.

Whether the software can be used to track zebrafish larvae in multi-well plates, petri dish or adult zebrafish on tanks (individually or group),the software allows analysis of different behavioral patterns including locomotion activity in zebrafish (speed and distance) which can be coupled with several stimuli such as optogenetic, sound, temperature, optomotor response test etc.


User-friendly software


Take further your zebrafish behavior research with an easy to use interface: 

  • Intuitive protocols creation

  • Standardized and automated protocols

  • Easy to trigger stimuli throughout the experiment

  • Replay mode (videos, raw data for instantaneous results)

  • Accurate animal detection 

  • Heat Map and image of the trajectory 






A versatile video tracking system for your zebrafish research


ZebraLab allows researchers to perform a wide range of tests based on locomotion assessment of multiple zebrafish stages, including:

  • zebrafish toxicity studies: measurement of the impacts of chemical contaminants           
  • sleep study in zebrafish
  • learning and memory in zebrafish
  • zebrafish operant conditioning
  • startle response, prepulse inhibition, and C/S shape analysis for zebrafish

  • optomotor response for zebrafish larvae

Advantages of using ZebraLab


A polyvalent video tracking solution for zebrafish analysis: 

Zebralab has been developed specifically for zebrafish, from embryos to adult danio rerio. The software is also capable of tracking any other air/water/ground species such as drosophila, ants, mosquito, astyanax mexicanus, medaka fish, killifish, cichlid fish etc.Zebralab can work with several add-ons (software or hardware options) simultaneously. It has a multi research purpose. Instead of the dongle that can work unitarily at the time, ZebraLab offers the possibility to have an online software license installed on the acquisition workstation. As well as unlimited numbers of offline licenses that can work simultaneously on a third pc to reanalyze data and video post-experiment.The Zebralab system is evolutive and can be upgraded for specific needs.

Smart video storage

Our software ZebraLab will generate different output files, trajectory pictures, raw data (x; y coordinates for each animal, for each image) as well as a video. We are using a low compression rate to give you the best quality. This compression ratio is flexible and can be adjusted to your needs. We use XVID compression and AVI format to offer a better user experience via its interoperability format.


To date, ZebraLab has been a key solution for the research scene working on new advances on :
