Benefits of Plastination
Revolutionizing Anatomy Education
Precisely Dissected, Perfectly Preserved
Plastination has changed the way medical professionals, researchers and students engage with, and learn about, the human body. Plastinates provide a host of advantages over traditional anatomy study that encompasses wet specimens and/or artificial models.
Benefits to Students
Authentic 3D Models
Free of schematization and formaldehyde, Plastinates accelerate student comprehension.
No discoloration, shrinkage or drying. Cell and functional structure are perfectly maintained.
Diseases such as cancer, arthritis and Alzheimer’s can be preserved and studied in situ.
Muscles stay firm, enabling study from all angles, including afore hidden structural relationships.
Durable and permanent, Plastinates validate more complex and detailed dissection.
Benefits to Institutions
Additives & Alternatives
Plastinates can serve as complementary teaching tools or advanced alternatives to dissection.
Management & Budget Relief
Institutions are relieved from inherent logistical responsibilities and economic challenges.
Return on Investment
Plastinates have a long lasting durability and can be reused year after year.
Institutions with body donation programs can consider alternatives to specimen procurement.
Religious & Cultural Exemption
Traditions that restrict access to cadavers are afforded authentic human tissue study.
