More than 400 educational institutions around the world use Plastinates.
Von Hagens Plastination teaching specimens are used at various universities such as the College of Dentistry at New York University and Warwick University in Great Britain.
Some of these institutions have supplemented previous wet specimen dissection  with plastinates and others have entirely replaced them. The results have proved positively measurable in improving student training.
This has been particularly evident in smaller institutions.
