Apologia Biology Dissection Kit
This kit is a time-saving choice for your homeschool! It contains everything for the four optional dissection labs in Apologia's Exploring Creation with Biology
, including a 15-piece advanced dissecting tool set, dissecting pan, frog dissection guide, and four preserved specimens (frog, perch, crayfish, and earthworm). Our kit order form
lists all of the items in this kit.
You can order this kit now even if you will be doing the dissections later in the year. This kit also goes well with the Bob Jones HomeSat biology course.
If you want only the dissection specimens, you can order them individually: frog, perch, crayfish & worm.
Shipping Note: This item contains preserved specimens and only ships to the 50 US states with Economy, Ground or Express shipping options.
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 can be stored almost indefinitely. We recommend that you use specimens within one year of purchase to ensure the best tissue quality. Specimen discoloration over time is normal and does not indicate decay.
Store your specimens at normal room temperature--refrigeration is not
required. Storage in attics or garages at high temperatures will damage the specimens. Once opened, specimens can be resealed in a Zip-lock bag to prevent them from drying out for later use.

Overall, the kit was fine. One of the crayfish's claws was separated from the body. Compared to the images in the book, the body cavity of the crayfish was mostly empty, but I have heard this is not unusual for those specimens. Other than that specimens were in good shape.

This dissection kit is perfect so far...haven't actually dissected anything yet! Size of specimens is good. The only problem was a slight leak in one of the bags. I have them all in a ziplock until my daughter uses them.

We were amazed at the great quality of the specimens and the ease of keeping them on hand till we need them. A great value for the cost!

I was very happy with the quality of the specimens that arrived for dissection. They were much larger than I thought they would be. Shipping was fast and even in the hottest part of the summer everything arrived just fine!

Loved this! It shipped with all the tools and specimens intact. The smell isn't terrible, which is a great plus!Read More Reviews
