Diaphonization, also known as Clearing and Staining produces an incredible display of science and art in a myriad of sensational colours. Unlike wet specimens or traditional taxidermy this intricate process first renders the flesh transparent offering a window into the skeletal structure, followed by the delicate and precision injection of rich coloured dyes, each colour penetrates and illuminates a specific component, muscles, cartilage, tendons etc.
These specially stained rats have been processed to highlight the skeleton in a redish/purple tone. The double stain differentiates the cartilage in blue. This large container allows the specimen to be observed from all angles in stunning detail.
These specimens were carefully processed over months in order to ensure quality, vibrancy, longevity, and safety. Though many heavy chemicals were used through the process, this piece is completely safe and can even be used as teaching tools for demonstration of bone development, or an addition to any collection.
