Xenopus Housing System
The Xenopus Housing System is designed for the African Clawed Frog but can house other aquatic species as well. It is available in a 3- or 4-rows configuration with 16 , 23 or 40 litre tanks. The Iwaki Aquatic Life Support Controller monitors and controls the system with any internet ready device and cloud based software and sends out emails or SMS when parameters are out of range. The Iwaki precision pumps accurately dose required chemicals which together with the filtration system will keep the water in optimal condition.
Xenopus Housing System
- Available in three or four shelf configurations.
- Available in stand-alone, flow-through, and multi-rack configurations with a centralized life support system

- All components are supported by the rack above the laboratory floor for ease of cleaning
- Filtration and UV bypass so system can be serviced while running
- Advance Walchem W900 life support controller with pH, conductivity, temperature probes in flow cell. Walchem probes are industrial grade and only require calibration every three months. System includes level sensor and flow sensor for safety and shut-down of electrical components in the event of a low water or low flow situation. Option for dissolved oxygen or total dissolved gas probes.
- Monitor or control your system locally or remotely (via any internet ready device)
- Chart and graph water quality parameters over time
- Life support controller sends email or SMS text alerts when parameters are out of range
- pH and conductivity dosing system with proven Iwaki metering pumps and large capacity dosing solution reservoirs (3-4 week refill).
- Programmable automatic water exchange
- System plumbing is designed with unions in strategic locations so the entire system can be disassembled for cleaning
- Chilling and heating options

LAbREED™ Zebrafish Rack
The LAbREED™ Zebrafish Rack can hold 5 or 6 rows of Zebrafish Tanks with volumes of 2, 4.5 or 9 litre. The Iwaki Aquatic Life Support Controller monitors and controls the system with any internet ready device and cloud based software and sends out emails or SMS when parameters are out of range. The Iwaki precision pumps accurately dose required chemicals which together with the filtration system will keep the water in optimal condition.
LAbREED™ Zebrafish Tanks
The LAbREED™ Zebrafish Tanks are designed specifically for the LAbREED™ Zebrafish System and come in three sizes : 2 litre, 4.5 litre and 9 litre. They only consist of three parts, tank, tank lid and adult baffle, and are therefore very easy to clean and to set up.
