DESCRIPTION

A sheep heart is similar in size to a human's, with dissection showing the atriums, ventricles, aorta, valves, veins, and arteries. This is a plain preserved specimen of an adult sheep heart. It can be used instead of a cow's heart for dissection labs. Order 10+ to save extra for your class!

Note: Preserved sheep heart specimens are initially treated with a formaldehyde solution, the best animal tissue fixative. The formaldehyde is then displaced, first with water and then 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.
