Incredible specimen in diaphonization – classic red stained rat in a tincture jar. Diaphonization is a spectacular blend of science and art. Also known as clearing and staining, diaphonization produces a surreal specimen in a myriad of sensational colours. Unlike wet specimens or traditional taxidermy, this intricate process renders the flesh transparent offering a window into the skeletal structure. The delicate and precise injection of each rich coloured dye penetrates and illuminates a specific component, muscles, cartilage and tendons.
