AGAWAM, Mass. July 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Microtest Laboratories has announced a new fast-track test to screen plastics and polymers in medical devices for toxicity using Zebrafish embryos (Danio rerio), a technique already widely utilized in drug development studies.
The Giant Danio (Devario aequipinnatus) is a tropical fish belonging to the minnow family (Cyprinidae). Originating in Sri Lanka, Nepal, and the West coast of India, it grows to a maximum length of 6 in (15 cm), making it one of the largest of the Danionins. They are characterized by a blue and yellow torpedo shaped body with gray and clear fins. In the wild, Giant Danios live in clear streams and rivers among hills at elevations up to 1000 ft (300 m) above sea level. Their native...
The Zebrafish (Danio rerio) is a tropical fish belonging to the minnow family (Cyprinidae). It is a popular aquarium fish, where it is frequently sold under the trade name Zebra danio, and is also an important model organism. Characteristics The zebrafish arose in the Ganges region in Eastern India and is also native to Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Myanmar.

The Glowlight danio is a small fish with a maximum length of 1.25 in (4 cm). Its coloration is brown, yellow, green and red. The Glowlight can live in waters that are (20-25 degrees Celsius), 6 to 7 pH, with a soft to medium hardness and a low to medium salinity. These fish are compatible with other danios and typically live from 1 to 3 years. They are moderately difficult fish to keep, and breeding can be even harder. Danio choprai or the Glowlight danio is a small, schooling fish...
