Assess functional vision characteristics in zebrafish
Zebrafish as a model organism for visual behavioral screening has appeared to be a starting point for the development of promising human ophthalmological treatments.
The assessment of zebrafish visual performance should leave no room for guesswork as it is the first step to discovering strategies that zebrafish use to regenerate a damaged retina such as cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, etc. Reflex visual function can also be assessed to study the relation prey-predator, shoals, conspecific recognition, shape, color cues.
ViewPoint has a wide range of systems to assess such tests : optokinetic response test on larvae and optomotor motor response on adult with our VisioBox system. You can also perform dark/light cycle, optomotor response, optogenetic experiments using our ZebraBox.
