Creating a Protein Action Figure
Shortly after creating the first 3D print of Oxygenated Hemoglobin, Wired Magazine found our blog post and wanted to write a short article on it. By the time the article was ready for press, Michael Gulen and I had completed our prototype of Oxygenated Hemoglobin cast in durable colored plastics from silicon molds. Thanks again Rachel Swaby for finding us and writing the article.
Popularizing science lies at the heart of what we do at Biologic Models. Turning protein data into educational experiences connects people to science in new ways that creating lasting memories. It was exciting early on in our creative process to have come to the attention of Wired. It was so gratifying to have captured their attention.

Purchase Oxygenated Hemoglobin Model
Each Hemoglobin model is custom made to order. We work with talented action figure toy designers to create our scientific models using traditional silicon mold casting in high-quality plastics.
