Veterinary Schools (on-site and on-line)
The best tool to teach compared anatomy in an effective, innovative and comfortable way.
Why is plastination the best tool to teach anatomy in an effective, innovative and comfortable way?

Plastination is the safest and most innovative way to teach anatomy, using real organs, directly manipulable in any situation and environment (on-site and on-line).

1. Specially prepared for the theoretical-practical teaching of Veterinary Anatomy. Its realism and easy manipulation promote rapid student integration during online teaching.

2. Ideal complement to dissections, as they provide a learning experience that facilitates understanding of the body’s three-dimensional organization.

3. They allow direct manipulation of real organs in any environment and without personal protective measures.

4. They promote teaching innovation in any teaching program (systematic, functional, topographic, clinical anatomy) or methodology (flipped class, seminars, cases…)

5. Ideal for the study of comparative anatomy and to increase student confidence.

 

 

6. Avoid exposure to toxic fumes and invest in protective equipment and embalming solutions.

 

 

University professors testimonies

“We often use plastinated organs in our anatomy teaching during dissection sessions and in class. Occasionally, they are also used by students in their demonstrations. These pieces are are well valued by both students and teaching staff”

Juha Laakkonen, PhD Veterinary Anatomy, University of Helsinky

 

“The teaching staff use plastinated specimens, both as a support for traditional dissection and to show the students structures of clinical importance. All our plastinated specimens have been produced by Discover-in and are of excellent design. Along with my colleagues and our students, I am very impressed with the quality, ease of use and educational benefit of these plastinated specimens

David Kilroy, Veterinary Anatomy lecturer, Veterinary School, University College Dublin

Plastination and its advantages in teaching anatomy
Plastination is changing the way anatomy is taught.

It is a technique by which the tissues fluids and part of the fat are replaced by a polymer. This technique allows to prepare real organs of unlimited duration in time, manipulable in any situation and environment.

Reality

Students can manipulate 100% real organs. In online classes the teacher can show anatomy in an attractive, comfortable and real way.

Durability

The School can keep an organ library unlimitedly.

Variability

Wide variety of organs of the different domestic species.

Comfort

Teaching experiences in any field and easy storage, without the need for special equipment.

Non-toxic

Manipulable organs in any situation and environment, without the need for gloves or other means of individual protection.

Services for Veterinary Schools

We prepare plastinated anatomical pieces adapted to the teaching or research needs of each University.

Currently our plastinated pieces are found in Veterinary Schools around the world.

DISCOVER-IN plastinated around the world

Some of the universities throughout the world that already have DISCOVER-IN plastinated pieces:

Collections
