Anatomy and Physiology Laboratory

Tissue Laboratory FacilitiesThe Anatomy Laboratory at ABI is a state-of-the art facility designed specifically for processing, packaging and shipping of post-mortem tissues and organs. This lab is a clean, controlled environment with the appropriate cleaning, final trimming, cooling and packaging equipment needed to pack and ship superior post-mortem swine tissues and organs. A large freezer runs 24 hours a day and freezes cold packs Porcine Organs - Tissue Preparationwhich are later stored in chest freezers so that they are always in full supply. Here in this facility the final stages of preparation occur before tissues are properly packaged and shipped via FEDEX. A large percentage of ABI's research swine tissue shipments are fresh tissues and organs stored on cold packs. Dry ice is available as well. 

Porcine Tissue Laboratory FacilityFollowing collection of organs and tissues from our abattoir facility site, where they are quickly harvested and cooled, they are transported to our anatomy laboratory. Here, all tissues are counted, re-examined (as part of quality control), sorted and packaged.

ABI also prepares and sells cannulated tissues and organ blocks that are used with special assimilation devices requiring certain arteries, veins or ducts to be cannulated.
