2. PLACE ORDER FOR FISH OR SERVICES
As a service to the community and EHS members, we offer the ability to order specific pathogen free fish (SPF) for two wildtype line and toxicity testing in embryonic and adult zebrafish. There are discounts available to those depending on their affiliation to the ZBR. The order form applies to both OSU and external members. An order form is required to receive our services. OSU Users must use a different ordering form.
The SPF monitored AB and 5D Tropical lines were originally screened for Pseudoloma neurophilia using qRTPCR (Sanders, 2011). After entering the SPF facility all lines are routinely screened for Pseudoloma neurophilia and other pathogens of concern (Kent, 2011).Since their introduction into the SARL facility, the lines have been maintained using a method that is in accordance with the ZIRC's protocol for AB and wild type next generation propagation. Each new generation is derived from the offspring of no less than 25 small group crosses, containing 3 males and up to 3 females each. Equal numbers of contributors are pulled from each cross to create the next generation. Embryos are screened daily until 5 dpf for the morphological defect.

There are two types of fish order – self collection (ie: local pick up) or delivery (only within the United States). All delivery orders include the cost of shipping, supplies and handling.
Embryos are bleached at 8 hours post fertilization (hpf) and will be approximately 48 hours upon arrival. Delivery orders must be received with at least 2 weeks lead time before desired receipt date. Shipments are sent only on Tuesday and Wednesday. Self collection orders must be placed 72 hours before needed.
Zebrafish developmental toxicity testing is available to all those who wish to assess their samples. Additionally, we offer adult and larval behavior assays.
