Where Plastination Takes Place
All plastinates are developed in the laboratories of Gubener Plastinate GmbH in Guben, Germany (about 2 hours from Berlin). The historic facilities were renovated to match the high standards set in Germany for environmental protection and hygiene. Dr. Gunther von Hagens has ... created the first Anatomy Plastination Center in the world that offers an ideal environment for education and development. The facility includes an anatomical permanent exhibition of Plastinates – the PLASTINARIUM - originating from the laboratories, and a demonstration and viewing area.
Our experienced staff, some with more than 25 years of experience in Plastination manufacture each plastinate by hand. Each plastinate is carefully dissected to maintain and expose even the most complex body structures, under the leadership of Dr. Gunther von Hagens and his team of professional anatomists.
