Arizona Plastination Arts

Arizona City, Arizona - United States

Recognizing a need for plastinated specimens in educational curriculum, and taking into account just how few plastination laboratories there are in North America, Arizona Plastination Arts has emerged from a small, University laboratory with extremely limited resources, to Arizona's premier - and sole plastination lab thus filling this void.

Recognizing the public interest in plastination, Arizona Plastination Arts has developed an anatomical donation program unlike any other in the State of Arizona. An anatomical donor program that focuses on the advancement of education through the use of plastination.

Arizona Plastination Arts has a passion for the science and study of anatomy, and high regard and deep respect for human function. Armed with a profound desire to improve and expand upon all levels educational curricula as well as the passion for chemistry are qualities accompanied by the willingness to work long hours with exacting precision to ensure quality plastinates are produced.
