Thank you for your interest in our unique human specimens, preserved through Plastination. Dr. Gunther von Hagens, inventor of Plastination and creator of the BODY WORLDS exhibitions founded Gubner Plastinate GmbH to fulfill the demand for plastinated specimens, for medical training and teaching. Many universities, schools, museums, hospitals, physicians, educators, students, physiotherapists and others in the medical field have incorporated the use of plastinated specimens in their educational programs, around the world.
Plastination allows for the aesthetic preservation of real human specimens and offers specimens that are dry, odourless and permanently fixed -- providing for an unprecedented learning opportunity. Over the past 35 years, Dr. von Hagens has refined, developed and improved his process to offer the most dynamic anatomical specimens available. All plastinates offered through our laboratory have been produced under his scientific direction and reflect the most advanced standards of his science and techniques.
In addition to the quality and lasting power of specimens provided by Gubner Plastinate Gmbh, we are honoured to be able to offer specimens that stem from the Institute for Plastination's body donation program. The programme was established by Dr. von Hagens shortly after he invented the process. Donors bequeathed during their lifetime that their bodies should be used for education of future generations through Plastination.
Please note that human plastinated specimens are restricted to "qualified users," defined as institutions or individuals which use specimens exclusively for research and educational purposes or for medical, diagnostic and therapeutic education. Qualified users include universities, hospitals, schools and museums or individuals such as medical scientists, professors, lecturers and those working on medical and educational research projects.
