Shuttle Box

Larvae and Adult Zebrafish

Experimental device supply allowing to test active avoidance on larvae or adult zebrafish, with visual, sound and electric stimuli.

Dimensions of the tank for adult :Shuttle Box adult

Length = 30 cm, Width = 18 cm, Height = 15 cm

  • Each tank will have 2 compartments of 15 cm length separated by a removable wall equipped with a mouth of a shape and dimensions to define before manufacturing.
  • The 2 compartments will be equipped with stainless steel plates placed at the bottom and at the surface enabling the electric shocks to be delivered.

Dimensions of the tank for larvae :Shuttle Box larvae

Length = 129 mm, Width = 86 mm, Height = 28 mm

  • The tank is divided into 8 compartments (2 rows of 4), for up to 8 larvae at the same time. One compartment is sized 34*29 mm with two areas of 14 mm wide.

Visual and electric stimuli will be controlled by the ZebraLab software.

The complete test device will be composed of :

  • A tank as described above,
  • An individual rack resistant to the shock generator,
  • A voltage-controllable generator for the electric stimuli,
  • An independent visual stimuli system for each compartment.
