Abstract

In this paper we report a novel biosensor based on electric field detection for recording cardiac electrical activity in zebrafish embryos. Using Sussex patented Electric Potential Sensing technology, a portable, non-invasive and cost-effective platform is developed to monitor in vivo electrocardiogram activity from the zebrafish heart. Cardiac activity signals were successfully detected from living zebrafish embryos starting at 3 days-post-fertilization
