Complex 3D Specimens
Anatomic Excellence offers the full range of von Hagens Plastination’s (vHP) 3D Silicone Plastinates. Each is ethically sourced through the Institute for Plastination Body Donation Program and expertly prepared by the anatomists of vHP.
Advantages of Silicone Plastinates
Most body parts, from single organs and complete systems to specific regions and whole body specimens, are available in vHP’s collection of Silicone Plastinates. The didactic value of Silicone Plastinates is high, particularly for faculty and students in higher education and research practitioners, because they:
Bring Clinical Anatomy to Life
The unique three-dimensional complexity offered by Silicone Plastinates illustrates intricate structures within the body, as well as their relative position to each other, in a way no plastic, clay, 3D printed or virtual model can.
Enable Full Customization
Silicone Plastinates are plastinated specimens from real human bodies. Not only is every specimen unique as a result, but the process of plastination enables educators to request anatomic positioning most advantageous for their specific program.
Provide Return on Investment
The inventor of plastination himself described the longevity of plastinated specimens as lasting “longer than the mummies and pharaohs of Egypt.” Silicone Plastinates are dry, non-toxic, extremely durable, and require no prescribed storage conditions.
