3D Kidney Nephron

3D Kidney Nephron

The 3D nephron model includes a simplified representation of this major structural and functional unit of the human kidney. Individually grouped vessels and tubules make for easy access and manipulation.

The 3D nephron model serves as an important tool in understanding kidney function and blood filtration. A simplified and somewhat schematic representation such as this one makes a very complex structural unit in nature readily understandable in the classroom. Features of this model include: supporting artery and vein, afferent and efferent arteriole leading to glomerulus contained within Bowman.s capsule, convoluted tubules, Henle.s loop, and the collecting duct leading to the renal pelvis. Understanding the nephron structure of the kidney is key to understanding the basics of blood filtration and urine formation.

"Here at Zoic the Zygote models have been an incredible and powerful asset for production. Specifically on "CSI" it has allowed for a nearly complete transition away from traditional prop building for all of our human anatomy shots. We use Zygote to digitally create the intricate and mysterious worlds of the human body. This results in allowing us and the writers to explore almost any area of the human body one can imagine."
