Plastinates for New Opportunities
The pioneering specimen preservation method of Plastination has changed the way medical professionals, researchers and students engage with, and learn about, the human body. Plastinates allow a considered encounter and deep engagement with human biology and ... anatomy, with none of the disadvantages of traditional specimens.
Plastinates are dry, long-lasting, odorless, and non-hazardous. Their durability and characteristics allow for more hands-on instruction, leading to a more effective and efficient learning experience.
Plastinates also allow the viewing of natural variations as well as pathologies, as opposed to averaged anatomy seen in textbooks.
Our plastinates are used at universities all over the world, including the College of Dentistry at New York University, the University of Texas Health Center in Houston, Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine in Singapore and the University of Warwick in England, to name a few. All of these institutions have either supplemented or completely replaced wet dissection with plastinates and have accomplished better results, and/or reported measurable success in the education of their students. This is especially true for smaller institutions.
