  • Vascular Cast Material

    I trying to locate a material to make casts of vascular structures.
    I've seen some used in the past; one is more latex-like, the other
    more acrylic-like. Ideally they should have viscosities that are
    similar to blood so extreme pressures don't distort the geometry.
    Also a protocol for digestion of the tissue that reveals the vascular
    structure would be of help. I've seen pictures of a vascular network
    cast placed over the bones of a joint, and would like to be able to
    something similar.

    I will post a summary of replies.

    Thanks in advance,
    John Cummings
