The Institute of Anatomy and Anthropology has an EXACT Grunding special cutting device for very hard tissues, an Anatomage virtual autopsy table, preparations by Gunther von Hagens, microscopy classrooms with demonstration systems, multi-head microscopes, specialised research microscopes and two electron microscopes by Joel (JEM-1011, JSM-6490LV).

The institute also has access to unique visual learning aids, which are essential in ensuring and supplementing medical study courses. The aids adhere to the latest industry technologies.

The Anatomage table is a virtual dissection table that can be transported on wheels, and offers visualisation with mainly duplex full-colour touchscreen. It ensures a full volume/scale display of the human body in very fine detail. The table ensures demonstration of processes in real time, and show at least three cases simultaneously. The table also contains an internal library for 100 special pathological cases.

The IAA has about 180 microscopes for student produced by Leica, Nikon and Optika. The institute is also equipped with two Leica multi-head microscopes.

The institute also has four Leica research microscopes, which use reflected light or fluorescence, stereo or inverted light microscopy method (Leica DM6000 B, or Leica LEITZ DM RB, Leica MZ16A, Leica DMI 4000B).

12 rooms at the institute are equipped with interactive Epson projectors and powerful Dell computers for presentations and the demonstration of microscopic preparations. Some auditoriums have wireless Sennheiser transmitters that ensure loud and clear audio, as well as demonstration touch panels.

The institute has two Joel electron microscopes, a transmission electron microscope and a scanning electron microscope, that are located in the Joint Laboratory of Electron Microscopy. These microscopes always attract interest, both from students and at public events.
