Dissecting a fetal pig is one of the best hands-on ways to learn about mammal anatomy. This affordable fetal pig dissection kit has everything you need, including a preserved, double-injected 10-13" fetal pig, photographic dissection guide, #22 scalpel, dissecting scissors, teasing needle, dissection pins, and a dissecting tray.
The 8-page dissection guide provides step-by-step instructions and includes a checklist for locating 23 major anatomical organs and structures during dissection. The 10-13" fetal pig is double injected to easily differentiate arteries (red latex injected) and veins (blue latex injected).
Home Science Tools recommends using disposable gloves for all dissections. Get a pair for each student!
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.
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.
