Get an inside view of how the eye works! A cow eye dissection is a memorable way to learn about anatomy. This complete dissection kit comes with a preserved cow eye, an illustrated dissection guide, #22 broad-blade scalpel, scissors, and a sturdy disposable dissecting tray.
You'll get see how a cow's eye is like a human eye as you see parts from the iris and lens to the colorful choroid layer .
Note: You can order this dissection kit now even if you won't be using it until later in the school year. 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. Plan to use specimens within one year of purchase to ensure the best tissue quality. Specimen discoloration and dryness 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.
