The silicone plastination technique was set up in 1992. The available basic equipment was located in a corner of the dissection room. The equipment increased year by year, and in 2000 the current laboratory was built, which allows the application of silicone techniques and also those based on epoxy resins or polyester.
The activity of the laboratory is continuous, producing an average of 400 pieces each year, which are used in teaching and research tasks. Some pieces are destined to the Veterinary Anatomical Museum for their exhibition, or they are sent to other anatomists, both national and international, according to their request by contract. One of the busiest periods in the laboratory is when the practices are carried out during the plastination courses that are held every year.
