ZebraTower allows you to obtain precise and reusable data whether you are working on zebrafish 3D tracking, sizing assay of zebrafish or any other aquatic species. ZebraTower is really versatile, as you can play with other types of animals such ground species (ants,etc.) and airborne species (flies, bees).

Bundle ZebraTower + ZebraLab

The ZebraTower is a component of ZebraLab and allows the high throughput analysis of adult zebrafish or related species. This bundle ensures repeatability and reproducibility of your data. Check out ZebraLab software and add-ons.

Get quality data from any adult zebrafish research

Do you struggle to collect data in real time to  measure multiple  adult  zebrafish behavior?  Understanding locomotor  behavior of zebrafish can be complex due to difficulties of calibration and limitations faced with 2D dimension capture.

Track different behavioral endpoints.

Zebratower is evolutive into GranView 3D tracking system.

Tracking of zebrafish locomotor performance should integrate a 3D video tracking capture in order to capture the whole behavioral endpoints. We will implement a second zebratower setup with a vertical IR light and a side camera to calcule the Z coordinate. Our software will synchronize the camera at the frame / 33 ms  and run a live analysis.

This means proper visualization of adult zebrafish :

  •  X YZ position coordinates

  • 3D Trajectory                      

  • Time spent in 2D Areas of the zebrafish tank

  • Entry count in each areas of interest     

  • counting for each speed class 

  • Time duration in each speed class         

  • distance swum by the animal within different speed clas

  • transition count

Alternative solutions

Detecting adult zebrafish movement can be challenging in an open environment  such as ZebraTower, particularly when performing tests requiring a light and sound proof environment in order to avoid stress and any bias in the measure of zebrafish locomotion. We solve these problems with our ZebraCube solution.Indeed it is based on a closed chamber where a white light is set allowing it to work along circadian  rhythm or to trigger light sequences.

Compact setup

Viewpoint offers the most simple setup to track and quantify the Zebrafish activity with the best accuracy.

Plug and play

Simply place the tank on the Infrared back light. The camera is set up on a fixed stand at the ideal distance to track several tanks located on the IR light area.
The IR light plays a major role in the tracking detection. No matter the background or the animal color you have. We will always be able to track the animal, as long as the tank bottom is transparent. 


Combining ZebraTower with ZebraLab 3D GrandView, you are ensured to capture the subject locomotion in multiple directions in its finest details.

Affordable price for adult zebrafish behavioral analysis

This setup is the best for your first step in the behavioral research world with commercial equipment.  For a more sophisticated solution please check out our Zebracube.

Compatible with all our mazes

Ask your representative for a custom demand on your expected maze.  We supply T maze X maze and Conditioned Place Preference for Zebrafish. Check out Mazes.
