Use the Comparative Eye Dissection Kit to get an inside view of how the eye works! Recognize the subtle differences between a cow eye, pig eye, and sheep eye. This biology kit comes complete with three specimens, a full color photographic dissection guide, and dissection tools.
Comparative eye dissection is a fun way for students to learn about anatomy and life science. Offer your student an eye dissection that will provide them lasting memories and knowledge about how eyes work. This dissection kit provides an exceptional home or classroom experience for inquisitive learners of all ages!
You'll get to see how the eyes of common mammals are similar to and different from a human eye as you investigate parts of the specimen eyes.
With the complete Comparative Eye Dissection Kit, you'll be able to answer questions such as:
- What is the difference between monocular and binocular vision and which species can see the greatest distance?
- Is the inside of the eye (vascular tunic) dark or iridescent?
- Why do animal eyes glow at night and what is the reflective material that creates this effect?
- What is the structure of the eye and the functionality of each component?
- How do eyes absorb light to create vision and protect us?
Inside this Comparative Eye Dissection Kit, you'll find:
- a preserved cow eye
- a preserved pig eye
- a preserved sheep eye
- a full-color photographic comparative eye dissection guide
- #22 broad-blade scalpel
- dissection scissors
- a sturdy disposable dissection tray
Home Science Tools recommends using disposable gloves for all dissections. You can even use a plastic lab apron to keep specimen materials off your clothing! 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 12 months from the date of purchase. One the original packaging 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.
