MedCure bids to improve access to human cadavers for researchers in Europe
Portland, OR-based MedCure is to open a non-transplant anatomical tissue bank on 1st September 2012 in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
The anatomical tissue bank in Amsterdam is described as the first of its kind and will provide much needed human cadaveric tissue specimens to be used by universities and medical researchers and educators in Europe. Such material has been difficult for researchers and physicians to acquire or their research, education or surgical training in Europe. Unembalmed cadavers provide an exact representation of human anatomy, including the variation from individual to individual, unlike any available anatomical models.
