| The Blechschmidt Collection, named for Erich Blechschmidt (1904 – 1992), developed methods of human embryo reconstruction from serial sections and generated large models describing the embryonic period of human development. The models include whole surface views as well as detailed views of embryo internal structures.
This collection has been the first of the DEC to be scanned and has been a testbed for the equipment, slide preparation and associated documentation. Based upon these results we have now developed a set of standard protocols for future collection scanning. My special thanks to Hannes Sydow, who has been involved with the many technical aspects of collection scanning.
