Study the anatomy of seven different large-size preserved animal specimens! This complete dissection kit includes a 17-piece tool set, 7 preserved animal specimens (such as grasshopper, fish, frog, etc.), a reusable dissecting pan, plus "How to Do a Dissection" guides for each of the specimens.
All of the animal specimens in this kit are plain without latex injection in the veins. This dissection kit includes all seven specimens packaged together in one bag, cutting down on your cost.
Note: Specimens are initially preserved with a formaldehyde solution, the best tissue fixative. The formaldehyde is then displaced first with water and then with a glycol solution to produce an easy-to-work-with, low-fume specimen that won't decay over time if properly stored.
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 animal specimen in heavy-duty, zip-lock bags to minimize drying between dissection times.
- 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. (Good news, since you probably don't want these in your fridge!)
WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including Formaldehyde, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer, and Methanol, which is known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.
