Our mission

ZeClinics mission is to accelerate research and allow reliable safety and efficacy assessment of new drugs and chemical compounds to reach the market faster. We challenge the discovery process by combining our expertise in zebrafish biology with lab automation and artificial intelligence.

Our mission is based on:

  • Excellent research: we are scientists. Our passion is to innovate and bring new solutions for our clients. We ensure the good quality of our internal procedures to develop relevant and reliable assays that guarantee the achievement of our clients’ project goals. 
  • Technical expertise: our team of experts specializes in zebrafish genetic and physiological research, lab automation and image analysis. They are trained to apply and integrate the last research advances into our processes.
  • Customer focus: our expertise is put at the service of our clients. We accompany every project, providing scientific advice, challenging hypotheses and suggesting custom alternatives.
  • 3Rs compliance: our experimental approach using zebrafish larvae fulfills the purpose of reducing, refining and replacing the use of experimental animal models and fully aligns us with the policies proposed by the EU Reference Laboratory for alternatives to animal testing (EURL-ECVAM).

ZeClinics has adhered to the transparency agreement on animal experimentation, promoted by the Confederation of Scientific Societies of Spain (COSCE)

'We are convinced that quality science could not be achieved without animal welfare'.

Our vision

ZeClinics vision is to place zebrafish as a fundamental tool for drug and target discovery and chemical safety assessment. We aim at becoming the global brand for zebrafish-based research services.

New legislation is forcing adherence to 3Rs principles in the drug discovery. In alignment to this, an increasing number of companies and researchers support 3Rs practices, based on ethical, scientific and economic benefits. Applying the 3Rs provides a unique opportunity for innovation, while minimizing animal suffering and distress, and saving costs of traditional animal models.

The zebrafish model can bridge the gap between in vitro and mammalian models along the preclinical pipeline, borrowing the best features from each of these models. As such, it can be more informative than in vitro models, while keeping high throughput capabilities. And it represents a cost-effective and faster alternative to mammals, while maintaining a high degree of biological translatability with human biology.

Our values


Our goal is to be the worldwide reference on zebrafish drug discovery, and research of excellence is our work guideline.


We invest in training our staff to help them develop their careers within the best environment.


We enjoy working along with critical spirit professionals therefore we care particularly about creating a healthy work environment where promoting freedom of expression and flexibility.


We are dedicated to protecting the environment and promoting a safe and healthy workplace.


We work for and with society as a whole, for the benefit of everyone and share our knowledge with the public in an ethical way.
