The previous methods for blood collection from zebrafish are lethal, such as lateral incision, decapitation and tail ablation. Thus we have developed a novel "repeated" blood collection method, and present here a detailed protocol outlining this procedure. This method is minimally invasive and results in a… CONTINUE READING
