Made in Germany by 3B Scientific, this latest model in 3B's MICROanatomy series, the tongue, is fascinating in that it combines various enlargements of specific parts of the tongue in one model. It comprises a macroscopic view of the tongue in life size (dorsal view) and microscopic views of the various papillae of the tongue (10-20x life size) and of a taste bud (approx. 450x life size). All views are mounted on a base that also features an overview of the sensory and sensitive innervation of the tongue. A unique model for an intensive study of the tongue.
Model measures 5.7 x 12.8 x 7.9 in and weighs under 2 lbs.
