Anatomy Lab LIVE offers a journey through the human body like never before, take part in the live dissection of VIVIT – the world’s only semi-synthetic human cadaver.
Dates in Manchester & Cardiff also.
Anatomy Lab LIVE will perform a live dissection of VIVIT – the world’s only semi-synthetic human cadaver for audiences this February. Anatomist Samuel Piri will perform the dissection procedure to showcase health and disease on real internal organs at this unforgettable event.
VIVIT is a specially constructed synthetic human cadaver that houses real anatomy (organs). During the procedure Samuel will dissect VIVIT to reveal the inside of the head and jaw demonstrating the brain and spinal cord. Following this Samuel will open the thoracic cavity to show the trachea, lungs and heart followed by the abdominal cavity revealing the stomach, liver, gall bladder, intestines, kidneys and bladder. All of VIVIT’s organs are of swine origin due to their anatomical similarities with humans. Live on stage Samuel will compare the human body in its healthy form to anatomical samples damaged by excessive alcohol consumption and smoking. Audiences will have chance to put their questions to Samuel and to leading medics accompanying him on stage. Following the procedure the samples will be prepped for handling by those in the audience who wish to further examine the specimens.
The event opens at The Cuttle Bridge Hotel, Minworth in Birmingham on Saturday 18th February 2017 with a second performance on Sunday 19th February 2017. The event begins at 6.00pm finishing at 11.45pm. Tickets include a two course sit down meal before the procedure and tea/coffee afterwards. Tickets are priced at £60.00 per person or a group ticket that admits 4 is £200.00. All ticket holders must be +16.
