Event Title
Zebrafish Workshop: Zebrafish as a Model System for Toxicology
07 Aug 2018 - 08 Aug 2018
08.30 - 05.00
Biotech 1, FBSB, UPM Serdang, Selangor
Event Summary
Introduction -
Toxicity test using zebrafish embryo is a robust test which is very cost effective, fast and convenient. Fitting nicely in 96 well plate with rapid observable growth and high correlation study to human - 80%.

Zebrafish embryo has been regarded as essential animal model in biomedicine (diabetes, heart disease etc) and toxicology. Zebrafish embryo is effectively used for screening systemic toxicant and complex mechanism. Adult zebrafish is regarded as a breakthrough model for unlocking numerous biological process related to human like muscle dystrophy, diseases and cancer.

Objective -
First day workshop is aiming for an alternative toxicity screening test using zebrafish embryo. All participants will get hands-on experience on handling zebrafish embryo, LC50 testing, and teratogenicity measurement.

Second day workshop will uncover the extensive usage of zebrafish and how to administer sample by gavaging technique and blood withdrawal from adult zebrafish.
