Automating fish egg sorting to streamline biomedical innovation
A small tropical fish in the minnow family, the zebrafish has made a large impact on biomedical research. It has almost all the genes humans do and produces hundreds of offspring weekly. The eggs remain transparent into the early larval stage, making non-invasive microscopic observation possible. Rapid development means hypotheses can be tested in minimal time. In stark contrast with the ease and speed with which eggs are produced and grown, manual sorting and inspection of thousands of eggs a day has been a serious bottleneck. EggSorter is developing a marketing and commercialisation plan for an automated system to make that faster, easier, and more fruitful to facilitate discovery and innovation in numerous fields.
