SERVICE DISRUPTION AT ZIRC
Update January 15, 2015:
As a result of a quarantine room fire on May 31st, ZIRC services continue to be disrupted and we are unable to supply fish from frozen sperm and cDNAs at this time. The following services and resources are currently available:

The soot and ash damage to the ZIRC building was quite extensive, requiring several months for cleanup, demolition and reconstruction. We anticipate construction completion in 2-3 months and will be accepting new orders for lines from frozen sperm and cDNAs in mid-winter. The import of live fish strains will be the last service brought back on-line. Over the next few weeks construction activities will cause some minor service disruptions, but we will do our best to process incoming orders as quickly as possible. If you have an outstanding order and have not heard from us yet then please expect to hear from us soon or contact us for an update.

Our ongoing health and breeding tests suggest that the main fish colony appears to be unharmed and the cryopreservation storage was unaffected by the incident.

We sincerely apologize for any disruption this situation may cause to your research. Please continue to monitor our website for updates and let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
