Made in Germany by American 3B Scientific, this skin model shows the microscopic structure of the human skin in great detail. With the help of the different skin sections of the hairless skin (for example palm of hand) and the hairy skin (for example forearm) the different skin cell layers as well as the embedded sweat glands, touch receptor, blood vessels, nerves and a hair with root can be seen. Furthermore a nail section model on the base shows the nail plate, nail bed and the nail root. The representation of a hair root with all its cell layers completes the skin model. This skin section model is a great addition to any doctor's office or classroom to demonstrate the anatomy of the human skin.
