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.

Rabbit teeth anatomy – why do tooth problems cause eye and nose symptoms?

Rabbit teeth anatomy

Length of rabbit front teeth in the jaws.

Anatomical photographs provide detailed insights

Real anatomical sheet plastinate of a rabbit head

Rabbit teeth reach very far into the jaws. They end close to the eye and nose cavity. This is why teeth problems in rabbits can be misinterpreted as eye disease or infection of the nose. The real anatomical plastinate of the rabbit head allows better understanding of the topography of the rabbit teeth and other structures of the head. The real plastinated specimens and the high resolution scientific photographs can be also found as Detail Vision Offers in Etsy: Rabbit head sheet plastinate and photographs in Etsy

Plastination 2.0 at the congress of the European Association of Veterinary Anatomists (EAVA)

posted in: Allgemein, Ethics, Exhibitions, Techniques | 0

The use of plastinates in schools, museums and other institutions was the subject of an oral presentation from Dr. Christoph von Horst at the EAVA congress in Stara Zagora (Bulgaria). Veterinary anatomists from all of Europe, the US, South America, New Zealand and Australia heard about how plastinates can be adapted to the needs of a wider range of users. The tension between aesthetics and the scientific message played a major role in the speach. Co-author of the presentation was Prof. Dr. Robert W. Henry (President of the World Association of Veterinary Anatomists). Henry and von Horst also presented a scientific poster that suggests a change of the anatomical nomenclature (Nomina anatomica veterinaria) for the equine maxillary sinuses.
