Hi Tom,

        The technique was developed in Germany. There is now an International
        Society for Plastination with plenty of information. The link is:

       Can you tell me about this plastinization process?  I have been
       looking a
       long time for a way to safely preserve tissues.

       We have a variety of organs that have been put through a
       process called
       plastinization.   They are either whole organs or large slices of organs.
       This process makes them feel like rubber, but they are indeed
       the "real
       thing".    We take them every year to our hospital's health
       fair at the mall
       and they are hit of our clinical laboratory display.   (after
       all who cares
       about boring posters??)
       The kids love them.   Some of our organs are normal and others
       show disease
