... actually a thin slice of animal tissue, treated and vacuum-pressed to the thickness of a piece of light-permeable paper and sealed in durable acrylic. Oblivious to spills and scratches, your specimen is one of a kind. You may wish to collect a set of reference specimen

illustrating pathologies or use normal tissue for comparative anatomy. German anatomist Christoph von Horst PhD DVM’s patented veterinary applications elevate animal science and medicine and find many practical uses. For the first time, equine plastinate specimen are now offered to U.S. colleges and veterinary practices by Hoofcare Publishing.

ANATOMY AS ART

NATURE AS DESIGNER

How can we improve on nature? Only by opening the view more, to reveal the simple power of the horse’s limb in crisp, clear acrylic.

No distraction, no decoration can improve on nature’s design.

Sometimes, as corporate awards or gifts, a company’s name can be engraved or screened on the acrylic by special arrangement.

And if nature is to be a teacher, certain structures in the plastinates can be pointed out with labels.

Plastinates are available in three types:

  • 1. “Plain” (no visible acrylic, although the tissue is impregnated;

  • 2. “Thin” which emulates a radiograph and can be used in clinical settings as a living x-ray, or in office settings as a display on an acrylic easel;

  • 3. “Thick”, the most impressive, free- standing model, which catches light and acts like a piece of sculpture holding an element of one of nature’s greatest creations, the horse.
