Yes more or less that is the same design.

In our version they included two hinged covers which are kept closed when the dissection is not in progress.

One of the challenges we are still working out is an efficient method to keep the cadaver's from drying out.

Russ,  Is that the table in the ACGIH manual in figure VS-99-02?

We recently remodeled our Gross Human Anatomy Lab with down-draft tables which are reducing the formaldehyde in the air dramatically. We followed the �side-slot' design that University of Nevada found most effective.
