Advancing Anatomical Science: Specialized Plastination Training at Discover-IN

Plastination, an innovative anatomical technique, has revolutionized the way we preserve and study biological tissues. This sophisticated process involves replacing water and fat in tissues with curable polymers, resulting in specimens that are dry, odorless, and durable, making them invaluable for educational and research purposes. Mastery of this technique requires specialized training in experienced laboratories.

At Discover-IN, we pride ourselves on a rich tradition of offering such comprehensive training programs. Recently, we had the pleasure of hosting Dr. Rebeca Viveros from the University of Asunción in Paraguay, Pablo Olivares, who holds an FP degree in Cytodiagnosis and Pathology, and Marta Díaz, a dedicated Veterinary student. They joined us at our state-of-the-art facilities at the University of Murcia for an intensive training session.

During their time with us, Dr. Viveros, Mr. Olivares, and Ms. Díaz had the unique opportunity to immerse themselves in the plastination process, particularly for our esteemed OrganKit project. This project aims to create detailed and durable anatomical models that can be used for educational purposes across various fields of medicine and biology.

Our trainees were captivated by the meticulous process of plastination and the remarkable results it yields. They gained hands-on experience, working closely with our brilliant technicians and observing each step, from the initial preservation to the final curing of the specimens. This experience not only enhanced their understanding of anatomical sciences but also highlighted the educational potential of the OrganKits.

Here they are, fully engaged and working alongside our expert team, discovering the beauty and intricacy of plastination. Their enthusiasm and dedication were truly inspiring, and we are confident that the skills they acquired during their training will significantly contribute to their professional growth and the advancement of anatomical sciences in their respective fields.
