Anatomic Excellence offers one-of-a-kind, real human specimens, preserved by Gubener Plastinate; exclusively for medical teaching, anatomy labs and instruction. These anatomical teaching resources are made possible through the revolutionary specimen preservation process of Plastination, invented by anatomist Dr. Gunther von Hagens, founder of von Hagens Plastination.
Through Dr. von Hagens science – a unique collaboration between the Institute for Plastination’s Body Donors, the Plastinarium’s Anatomists and Technicians – Educator’s and future generations of Health Care Professionals will be able to gain knowledge of human anatomy that was previously unavailable. All of our Plastinates are produced in Germany at Gubener Plastinate GmbH under the leadership of Dr. Gunther von Hagens and Dr. Vladimir Chereminskiy.
The Institute for Plastination’s Body Donation Program that makes these specimens available for education and instruction was founded in 1993. We are grateful to the donors who declared their wish to be useful for medical teaching and instruction. We are confident our specimens will enhance anatomy lessons, teaching and curriculum.
