This biology lab kit for BJU Press Biology 10 comes with microscope slides (blank & prepared slides), dissection specimens, chemicals, and other lab equipment needed for the biology labs in the BJU Biology 10 Lab Manual, 5th edition.
With it, your high school student will conduct high-quality science labs & learn how to:
- dissect a crayfish and a rat;
- measure lung capacity;
- view and observe specimens under a microscope;
- and more!
To make this homeschooling biology kit more affordable for you, we've chosen to exclude a microscope, which is required to conduct biology experiments in this biology course. If you don't already have a microscope, we highly recommend our affordable, best-selling Home Microscope.
Note: This biology lab kit does not coincide with BJU Press Distance Learning curriculum. Click here for information on how to order the materials needed for the Distance Learning labs.
Note: Specimens are initially preserved with a formaldehyde solution, the best animal tissue fixative. The formaldehyde is then displaced first with water and finally with a glycol solution to produce a moist, low-fume specimen which will not decay over time.
HST Specimen Guarantee
In sealed, original packaging, our preserved specimens are guaranteed to remain fully preserved and free of decay for six months from the date of purchase.
Once the original package is opened, use specimen within one month. For best results, observe the following storage procedures:
- Store specimen in heavy-duty, zip-lock bags to minimize drying between dissections.
- Specimen will slowly dry out or become contaminated in zip-lock bags; add a teaspoon of Specimen Holding Fluid to retain moisture.
- Freezing or refrigeration is not necessary and may damage fragile tissues.
