Hoffen Plastinated Specimen
Dalian Hoffen Bio-Technique Co.,Ltd. has many excellent technicians that are responsible for the research and exploitation of plastination, which can offer the most professional support and technical training. Depending on the mature plastination technique, Hoffen bio-technique offer the reliable research platform for the projects of the universities & institutes and the culture of graduate students.
Silicone rubber technique is the commonest technique of plastination. In this technique, the silicone rubber is the reactive plastic in forced impregnation procedure. Silicone rubber has many advantages such as temperature resistance, weather-aging resistance, ozone-resistance, anti-eroding, high air permeability and inert, etc. Because it can be used for any putrefactive tissues and may get satisfied result with less equipments, this technique applies most widely. The silicone specimens that Dalian Hoffen Bio-Technique Co.,Ltd. produce are soft, durable, and convenient for maintenance, which are mainly used for teaching in universities and displaying in museums.
Polyester resin technique is another important technique of plastination, which is mainly applied in the production of transparent slices. Because polyester resin is colorless and transparent with a 90-92% transmittance, the slices produced with this technique have an excellent optical capability, which can clearly display the subtle structure on the sections of the biotic tissues. Moreover, the superior shock resistance and low temperature performance of the resin are in favor of the long-term usage and preservation of specimens. Along with the development of clinical radiology, such as CT and MRI, the transparent slices produced by Dalian Hoffen Bio-Technique Co.,Ltd. have been used more and more widely in the teaching and research of sectional anatomy.
