Anatomy Dpt. of the University of Heidelberg / Germany

Embalming and preservation of the cadaver is done using a special mixture of ethanol with a very small amount of formalin. The mobile embalming table is extracted and all fumes are lead into an in-house extraction system. The actual perfusion is done with a „PerfuTek“ pump system with adjustable pressure. Following this procedure the cadaver is placed for a certain time into the extracted tank with preservation fluid. After the total embalming procedure the cadavers are stored in an airtight plastic bag inside the cold rooms. Explosion proof regulations have to be followed.

The only preservation tank for 2 whole bodies is located near the embalming area. The tank is extracted which avoids hazardous fumes to reach the lab. Loading / unloading is done automatically. Explosion proof regulations have to be followed.

The demand of the users / planners was the storage of 76 cadavers for student dissecting / gross anatomy classes. After the total embalming procedure the cadavers are stored in an airtight plastic bag inside the cold rooms. Explosion proof regulations have to be followed.
