Sheet plastinates are 1-5 millimeter thick plastinated body slices from real human bodies. All bodily liquids of the specimens have been replaced by polymers. In comparison to well-known diagnostic pictures of computer tomography (CT) and ... magnetic resonance tomography (MRT), sheet plastinates illustrate anatomical structures, in color, either transparent or translucent.

The intricate world of macroscopy is revealed, as areas of interest can be studied down to the finest tissues, at the microscopic level.

The colored, dry and odorless slices show the positions of the structural elements in relationship to each other and offer a clear, didactically valuable distinction of the different kinds of the tissue.

Sheet plastinates are odorless and not harmful to health even when handling without gloves. They are durable, do not shrink and will not deteriorate with time.
