RIVERA, M. C et al. Multivaried Analysis Applied at the Stage of Dehydration in the Plastination Technique in Horse´s Kidney. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2009, vol.27, n.3, pp.855-859. ISSN 0717-9502.

Plastination is the most modern technique for the preservation of anatomical pieces and specimens. This technique consists of four stages: fixation, dehydration, forced impregnation, and cured. This research aims at improving the efficiency of production plastinated organs through the standard technique known as S10. Kidneys of criole mestizo equines from Frigorifico Aimar S.A placed in the rural area of Rio IV were used. After binding the organ with formalin, it was dehydrated. The dehydration was carried out in three sub-stages working at the same temperature, and a solvent composed of solution of acetone of different concentrations was used. The measurements were analysed with acetometer, keeping register of the time consumption to reach dehydration. The resulting data was statistically analysed using Infostat program. Results showed that the time consumed to reach dehydration was influenced by the horses age but not by the kidney's weight, there were no significant differences between right and left kidneys neither.
