Breathing bleeding synthetic body company coming to Texas

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – SynDaver Labs, a manufacturer of synthetic human and animal surgical trainers, is scheduled to attend the North American Veterinary Community’s 2017 Veterinary Innovation Summit from Apr. 28-30 at Texas A&M University.

SynDaver Augmented Reality2Throughout the three day event, representatives from SynDaver will provide demonstrations of the company’s live-tissue replacement trainers and will unveil their latest model, a virtual reality multimedia platform that incorporates both human and animal anatomy renderings.

The table-sized device works by utilizing a touch sensitive LCD surface to allow students to view and manipulate digital renderings of human and animal anatomical structures.

“We are very excited to be able to bring this technology to the North American market,” said Dr. Christopher Sakezles, founder of SynDaver Labs. “Having a device like this is a game changer for classrooms because it will allow students to learn anatomy the SynDaver way, with both our tangible and virtual models in the same space.”SynDaver Augmented Reality

Additionally, SynDaver recently delivered 15 new SynDaver Surgical Canines to the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences at Texas A&M University. The models will be used as the centerpiece of the school’s surgical training program during the 2017-18 school year and offer students a realistic alternative to live animal training.

Much like the SynDaver Synthetic Human, the SynDaver Surgical Canine is made of water, fibers and salts, similar to a real living organism and mimics live tissue. The device can breathe and bleed just like a real dog and has individual muscles, bones, and organs. Additionally, the synthetic canine can be operated on repeatedly without any risk to live animals.

Finally, SynDaver will also begin its search for a site to host a new Texas-based facility. Plans for the new facility are still underway, however the location will be used as an operations center for the company’s product refurbishment program.

First veterinary technician school to receive synthetic dog

WICHITA, Kan. – Wichita Area Technical College will become the first veterinary technician teaching program in the nation to begin using the SynDaver Synthetic Canine, SynDaver Labs announced Monday.

Veterinary Technology students at WATC will begin using the Synthetic Canine during the 2017 spring semester. The SynDaver Synthetic Canine was developed by SynDaver Labs in Tampa and offers students a realistic alternative to live animals for training purposes.

“The Veterinary Technology program at WATC is ecstatic to have the first SynDaver Synthetic Canine in the state,” said Amanda Hackerott RVT Program Director – Veterinary Technology. “The SynDaver Canine is an amazingly unique piece of health-science technology and it is only fitting that the largest technical school in Kansas has it.”watc_4c_logo_horiz

The SynDaver Synthetic Canine is made of water, fiber and salt, just like a real animal. It is designed to replace live animals and animal cadavers in veterinary medicine training.

The SynDaver can breathe and bleed just like a real dog. It has individual muscles, bones, and organs. Additionally, she can be operated on repeatedly without any risk to a live animal. The USDA mandates that every attempt is made to reduce, refine or replace live animal use.

By using the SynDaver Synthetic Canine, Veterinary Technology students at WATC will be provided hands-on experience without being exposed to carcinogenic formaldehyde used to preserve dead animals. Additionally, in the past when a live animal is used in training, there is a limit to how many procedures one student can perform. With the SynDaver, there is no limit per procedure; all students will be able to practice skills as much as necessary without violating USDA regulations.

Students will also be able to practice invasive procedures that would not be as practical to perform on a live animal. This broad scope of practice while in school will help to prepare WATC students to become leaders in the veterinary medical industry.

“We’re proud to be able to make a product, which is not only going to immediately save animal lives by replacing them in training, but it will also help to train those individuals who will be responsible for saving more animal lives in the future,” said Dr. Christopher Sakezles, founder of SynDaver Labs.

Ad featuring life-saving synthetic technology censored by Facebook

TAMPA, Fla. – SynDaver Labs, a U.S.-based bio-technology company, tried to boost a Facebook post about their newest product, the SynDaver Synthetic Canine, on Wednesday morning, but minutes after the attempt, Facebook censored the post, citing “Advertising Policies.”

The video in question is a new promotional video featuring the SynDaver Synthetic Canine.

According to Facebook, the “boosted post’s image, video thumbnail or video can’t contain shocking, sensational or excessively violent content.”

Ironically, all of the content in the video, which could be deemed shocking, is synthetic and manufactured by SynDaver Labs.

“One of our goals is to produce the most realistic looking, feeling and responsive tissues, organs and bodies for both human and veterinary medical education and training,” said Dr. Christopher Sakezles, founder of SynDaver Labs. “I see this as a testament to how successful we have been at replicating the realism, but to see this level of censorship and not be able to promote our product via Facebook is nonetheless, disappointing.”

The SynDaver Canine is similar to SynDaver’s synthetic human models. They are anatomically accurate, with synthetic tissue, synthetic fat, synthetic bones, synthetic muscles, synthetic ligaments, fully articulating synthetic joints, and each of the bodily systems are also synthetic.

The SynDaver Synthetic Canine has been acclaimed by experts in the veterinary industry and is already scheduled to be used by the University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine this fall.

(Judge Public Relations photo handout by Justin Mayfield)

TAMPA, Fla. – A Tampa biotechnology company unveiled their latest creation on Tuesday, a new skinless breed of dog, which will result in thousands of animals being saved as it is distributed.

SynDaver Labs, the world’s leading manufacturer of synthetic humans, unveiled the SynDaver Synthetic Canine and launched a $24 million crowdfunding campaign. The campaign will begin to end a process known as terminal surgery labs. The product will immediately end the need for terminal surgery labs in veterinary medical schools and represents the beginning of the end of animal testing in general.

The SynDaver Synthetic Canine is not only a skinless dog, but rather an extremely detailed and realistic surgical trainer. It will provide veterinary students with an anatomically accurate and realistic platform to practice surgical procedures. Similar to the SynDaver Synthetic Human, the canine utilizes SynDaver’s patented SynTissue, which mimics living tissue, includes a full list of functioning bodily systems, and has the capability to simulate customized diseases, illnesses and medical complications. The synthetic dog even has a heart with a heartbeat, a circulatory system, and bleeds when surgical cuts are made.

In addition to launching the SynDaver Synthetic Canine, the company also announced the launch of one of the most ambitious crowdfunding campaigns in history. SynDaver hopes to raise $24 million through their campaign page on Indiegogo.com. If the company is successful with the campaign, SynDaver will provide up to 20 synthetic canines to each accredited veterinary college around the world, completely free of charge.

By providing each veterinary college with a full complement of their new synthetic canines at no cost, SynDaver will effectively eliminate the practice of terminal surgery labs. In veterinary medicine, terminal surgery labs involve teaching students how to perform certain surgeries on live, anesthetized animals, and then euthanizing the animal immediately following the procedure. The SynDaver Synthetic Canine will also eliminate the need for canine cadavers, which are also typically euthanized animals from shelters.

While these kinds of labs are not as widely used as they once were, some veterinary colleges across the U.S. and around the globe still rely on terminal procedures to educate students.

“If we launched this product organically, it might take us a decade to put canine cadavers into every veterinary college and many more animals would die needlessly as a result,” said Dr. Christopher Sakezles, chief technology officer and founder of SynDaver Labs. “With the help of the crowdfunding campaign, we can do this practically overnight, and start to put an end to terminal labs for good.”

According to experts, this technology will save thousands of lives and revolutionize veterinary medicine education.

The SynDaver Synthetic Canine is similar to their human products. The canine models are anatomically accurate, with fat, fascia planes, all bones, muscles, ligaments, fully articulating joints, and each of the bodily systems. The product has been acclaimed by experts in the veterinary industry and has even garnered the support of Dr. Michael Blackwell, former chief veterinarian of the U.S. Public Health Service.

“A significant number of students do not care to be involved in terminal surgery procedures or the use of live animals when there is an alternative,” said Blackwell. “I am so happy to have this change because that is where we need to be today.”

SynDaver has been working closely with the University of Florida, College of Veterinary Medicine throughout the development of the SynDaver Synthetic Canine to create the most lifelike and realistic synthetic canine possible.

If SynDaver exceeds their $24 million crowdfunding goal, the company plans to begin working on the SynDaver Synthetic Feline next. There are also plans to develop synthetic horses and cows.

Hungry Gators sought to swim in Shark Tank company

UFGatorsGAINESVILLE, Fla. – SynDaver Labs, a Tampa-based manufacturer of synthetic humans, is looking to hire up to 60 entry-level engineers from the University of Florida during the Spring 2016 Career Showcase this Tuesday and Wednesday in Gainesville.

The unique company was founded in 2004 by Dr. Christopher Sakezles, a University of Florida alumnus, who needed to test medical devices he was developing, but wanted a more affordable and ethical alternative to animal and cadaver testing.

Since then, the company has taken the medical simulation industry by storm by introducing the most comprehensive synthetic human ever developed.

SynDaver’s Synthetic Human isn’t the only unique thing they have become known for. SynDaver stirred up headlines in November by boosting salaries throughout the company by 20 percent. In December they were at it again by giving away more than $1.5 million in stock to their employees for Christmas.

In addition to offering traditional employee benefits like 401(k)s, health, dental and eye insurance, SynDaver hired a health and wellness director last June to ensure their growing team of employees was provided the opportunity to have their physical fitness needs met at work by offering a variety of daily fitness classes. SynDaver Labs also instituted a healthy eating initiative where employees can sign up for free fruits and vegetables each week.

Their main staple is still, of course, the SynDaver Synthetic Human, which has skin with fat and fascia planes, all bones, muscles, tendon and ligaments, fully articulating joints, a functioning respiratory system with trachea, lungs and diaphragm, complete digestive tract from esophagus to rectum, urinary tract with kidneys, gall bladder, pancreas, spleen and reproductive organs. A functioning circulatory system with heart, coronaries, aorta, vena cava and vasculature to the extremities is also included.

SynDaver’s Synthetic Humans work with all known imaging equipment, including CT, MRI, fluoroscopy and ultrasound, and all known surgical systems – even those that employ energy such as lasers.

In early 2015, SynDaver Labs was featured on the ABC television show Shark Tank. SynDaver’s products have also been featured on Mythbusters, Grey’s Anatomy and the series finale of CSI.
