Plastination has revolutionized the study and research of anatomy, thanks to the biosecurity and indefinite preservation of human and animal bodies and organs. This paper presents the concept of Micro-Plastination, an ultra-thin sheet plastination technique, to obtain ultra-thin slices, of a thickness of less than 250 μm, for the identification and visualization of the microanatomy of any anatomical region in morphological and pathological experimental protocols.
KEY WORDS: Micro-plastination; Ultra thin slices; Experimental morphology; Experimental pathology.
