Genotyping Service for zebrafish

The Bateson Centre aquarium facility offers a genotyping service for all facility users. The service includes fin clipping, DNA extraction, PCR, restriction enzyme digest (or sequencing via RHH if required), interpretation of data results from agarose gels and relocation of identified fish ready for use for breeding.

We have specialised tanks with a genotyping rack for this service, providing water flow and feeding capability whilst housing up to 288 fish. After fin clipping, the turnaround time is typically the following day for results. The charge is based on consumable recover costs only and will free up researcher’s time utilizing this service.

The service is carried out by Lisa Van Hateren (email: l.j.gleadall@sheffield.ac.uk). Please email for request forms or for further information.
