Feature-Skin artificial skin for education

Together with Professor Ronan Cahill, Mater Hospital, we developed artificial skin for suture training purposes. It features texture variations, multiple layers and physical properties like human skin. It offers textural, haptic and erupting surprises that pave the way to a successful and holistic suturing adventure.

Aspects like scar tissue, cutaneous and subcutaneous, cysts, lumps and customised features are possible. We design features by e.g. 3D printing, various material selections and creative cross technology solutions.

Future plans cover multilayer, bone integration and plastic surgery setups.

Just see for yourself, plain skin, keloided..

3D Printing in Forensic Trauma

We printed a skull with clear signs of sharp-force trauma. A skull from a historical collection was used to recreate a 3D object. We believe – in future there will be no need to exhume a body – if you have a post-mortem CT-scan.

-CT scanning
-Segmentation and transformation of the CT file into a 3D printable file
-Printing and post-processing of the model

Syntec’s Significantly New Disk for Homogenisation

The task was to find a solution and new better disk when added with our other disposable containers to improve Sample preparation for PCR testing within laboratories for our customers.

“We were delighted with the combined effort and enthusiasm and we found this was a very practical and affordable way to develop our prototypes. The result was we found a new design of our disks which improved the end results significantly” Ray S., Syntec Scientific – www.syntec-international.com
