Bird anatomy plastination

What is a Research Outlet Plastinate?

Many plastinates are being prepared with a scientific focus on investigating and documenting anatomical structures. If the goal is a specific anatomical detail such a project might result in a number of specimens all visualising the requested detail in a perfect way but taking less care of other critera like the surface and egdes of the specimen, allowing slightly more gas and debris inclusions and maybe even grinding artefacts in areas that are not in the focus of the investigation. After the documentation of the visible details these plastinates are kept in stock and can be offered as outlet plastinates.

Do all offers in the outshop come from research projects?

No. Besides from scientific research and anatomical imaging projects outlet offers can also come from late stages of developing new techniques (Prototypes and Beta-Version specimens), from specimen presentations (show pieces), plastination exhibitions for rent or from returned orders. In case of high stock of certain specimen types you will even find regular A-quality specimens offered in the outlet shop.

What can I expect from an outlet offer?

All outlet offers fulfill the good standards of plastination and anatomical preparation and allow investigation of anatomical details. I recommend taking a close look at the description image. If present in the specimen, you will be able to recognise any major gas or debris inclusions, preparation artefacts, etc. Also take a look at the outside shape and surface of the specimen.

Can I return outlet offers?

Yes, you can return outlet items within 1 month. Please inform me within 1 month after you will have received the item. As soon as I receive the returned item you will get a full money refund including the shipping charged in the shop. You would only have to pay the cost for the return postage. I recommend insured registered mail for returning items.

Fish anatomy sheet plastination specimen with heart and brain position

Sectional anatomy of fish with heart and brain position

Fish anatomy specimen. The veterinary anatomical sheet plastination specimen shows relevant anatomical details of the morphology and topography of fish like heart, brain, air bladder, spinal cord, finns, etc. From a animal welfare point of view the position of the fish heart and brain are particularly relevant. Only exact knowlegde of the position of these two fish organs makes sure that fish do not suffer more than necessary during slaughtering. Observing the normal size of the air bladder also makes clear how moving fish from deep water to the surface can cause the typical signs of barotrauma: bulging eyes and bloated abdominal area. Most important the real fish anatomy specimen allows understanding how complex and fascinating even a small fish is inside. This results in more respect for fish and any living organism. You can buy this print at the plastination shop. Also find many real anatomical outlet plastinates and prints at www.plastination-shop.com

Horse hoof slices are available in thickness from appr. 3 to 30 mm. Thinner specimens are more flexible.

Flex moulage casts are the latest invention to present the anatomy of the horse hoof in a way that makes horse owners understand the specific problems of the equine digit. In the beginning freeze-dried hoof slices and semi-sectioned hooves were the only available instructional aids. With their characteristic smell and pseudo-realistic appearance they often had a more shocking than instructional effect on the horse owner. Sheet plastinates of the hoof have a completely different appearance. Horse owner love them for their beauty and often consider them as pieces of art. Their only disadvantage is a lack of 3-dimensional insight (find many examples in the picture gallery EQUINE ANATOMY at plastinate.com. Furthermore it was often requested to provide an anatomical model that allows you to move its different structures a little bit and allow you to investigate hidden details of the horse hoof anatomy.

Please take a look at the flex moulage casts as shown below. We consider a combination of sheet plastinates, high resolution anatomical picture prints and the new flex moulage casts a perfect fit for the needs of anyone who needs to explain the anatomy and pathology of the hoof to a horse owner.

You can find similar casts offered in my Etsy shop in the EQUINE ANATOMY section.

Flex moulage cast of other species and maybe even of the human anatomy will follow soon.
