Best Practices & FAQ

Removing the power cable on the Table.

The power cable locks into place once plugged in. To release, pull the red slides on either side of the plug to unlock and unplug the Table. DO NOT tug on the cable to remove without releasing the red slides.

Cleaning the Table.

To clean the glass utilize the provided microfiber cloth or any microfiber cloth. For tough to remove spots use a monitor or LCD screen cleaner.

For those very tough spots use a non-ammonia based cleaner by spraying the cloth first, then wiping the spot.

Cleaning Table Alpha or Clinical.

A cleaner suitable for glass and plastics is ok, or water with a small amount of liquid soap. Do not apply the cleaning solution directly to the screen. Apply the cleaning solution to the cloth first then clean the screen. Ethanol products must not be used.

Where did we get our cadavers?

Our cadavers are based off the Visible Human and Visible Human Korean Projects.

How did they die?
