High-throughput in vivo vertebrate screening.

We demonstrate a high-throughput platform for cellular-resolution in vivo chemical and genetic screens on zebrafish larvae. The system automatically loads zebrafish from reservoirs or multiwell plates, and positions and rotates them for high-speed confocal imaging and laser manipulation of both superficial and deep organs within 19 s without damage. We performed small-scale test screening of retinal axon guidance mutants and neuronal regeneration assays in combination with femtosecond laser microsurgery.
