Looking for a classroom set of cow eyes for dissection? This kit contains everything your class needs for an engaging and memorable cow's eye dissection lab! It's the perfect size and price for smaller classrooms, or for students to share in larger classroom settings.
This complete cow eye dissection kit comes with:
- 10 preserved cow eyes for dissection,
- 10 illustrated cow eye dissection guides,
- 10 #22 scalpels,
- 10 dissecting scissors,
- and 10 dissecting trays.
As your elementary, middle school, or high school students dissect a cow eye, they'll get to see and examine the many complex parts of the eye, such as the optic nerve, the cornea, the sclera, the vitreous humor, the retina, and so much more.
Since a cow eyeball is so similar to a human eye, a cow eye dissection provides an opportunity for students of all grade levels to learn more about the human body! As they study the structures of the eye in this cow organ, they will better understand the function and anatomy of their own eyes.

Home Science Tools recommends using disposable gloves for biology dissections. Get the size and quantity of disposable gloves you need for your classroom.
Note: Specimens are initially preserved with a formaldehyde solution preservative, 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.
