What is an Early Bird Plastinate?
Early Bird Offers include plastinates of all techniques and topics: sheet and figure plastination, epoxy, S10 silicone and polyester plastination; plain, direct, sandwich, TTT-plastination (in combined epoxy-acrylic embedding) topics from Alpaca to Zebra Finch. The items were added to the shop before detailed reviewing and classification.

What is the main difference to regular plastinates?
You choose your item from looking at the images only – without consultation or detailed description. You get a much a cheaper price and have first access to rare unique pieces and exceptional specimens.

Why are Early Bird plastinates so cheap?
Cost and effort for the scientific evaluation and reviewing do not apply, neither the time for consultation about visible details and available techniques. Furthermore we assume “acceptable” anatomical preparation quality with possible preparation artefacts and no rare or exceptional findings which lead to a higher value for museums and collectors.

How does the reviewing and classification process work?
We evaluate the following aspects

  • Applied preparation and plastination techniquesVerwendete Präparations- bzw. Plastinationstechniken
  • Species and organ / body part, exact description of embeded objects, plants, minerals, etc.Tierart und Organ / Körperteil, genaue Beschreibung eingebetteter Objekte, Pflanzen, Mineralien, etc.
  • Unique and rare findings such as signs of disease and abnormalities. Auffälligkeiten und seltene Befunde wie z.B. Erkrankungen, Fehlstellungen, Anomalien.
  • Other aspects which would make the specimen extra-ordinary and valuable for museums and collectores.
  • Preparation mistakes and artefacts which would reduce the value of a specimens like missing or broken parts, etc.

Don´t wait too long! As soon as an Early Bird Plastinate has undergone evaluation, it will be offered in the shop or showroom as a regular plastinate at a higher price.
