Cured Slices, Millimeters Thick
Macroscopic & Microscopic Tissue Study
Anatomic Excellence offers a wide variety of von Hagens Plastination’s (vHP) Sheet Plastinates, all just 1 to 5 millimeter thick cured slices from real human bodies. Each is ethically-sourced through the Institute for Plastination Body Donation Program and expertly prepared by the anatomists of vHP.
Advantages of Sheet Plastinates
As is true of all plastinated specimens, the bodily fluids within vHP’s Sheet Plastinates have been replaced with polymers – revealing intricate anatomical structures, all of which remain intact. Sheet Plastinates enable students and practitioners to:
Study Structural Elements In Situ
Users can examine complex systems at a macroscopic and microscopic level and in relationship to each other, such as blood supply to the bone, or subtle structures within muscles and nerves, adding didactic value and bolstering surgical preparatio.
Engage in Authentic Examination
Unlike diagnostic pictures of Computer Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Tomography (MRT), Sheet Plastinates are transparent or translucent, true to original size, and illustrate anatomical structures in vibrant color.
Handle Without Restriction
Sheet Plastinates are dry, odorless, durable and will not shrink or deteriorate with time. They are non-toxic and pose no health hazard, even with repeated handling without gloves. Slices can be custom colored as needed, allowing for distinctions previously unseen.
