Dissection Kit Advanced

Item# DE-KIT02

This complete dissection kit is great for anatomy studies! Nine preserved animal specimens, our 17-piece dissection tool set, a reusable dissecting pan, and How to Dissect by William Berman are included in this kit. The 223-page book clearly illustrates and explains how to dissect everything except the Grantia specimen. All of the specimens are plain without colored latex injection.

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.

wonderful service Review by
Well everything arrived in a reasonable timeframe in excellent condition would certainly order again
Great kit Review by
The kit was perfect for what I needed it for. I only wish that the specimens were packaged individually, instead of in one big bag together. A magnifying glass in the tool kit would also be a helpful addition. Overall, a great kit.
These work well Review by
These lots are extremely well preserved. My stepfather teaches our biology lab. He has been walking around with that same pig for the last week! He is really having too much fun with it. Nevertheless, it has been holding up quite well. They also don't have that horrible smell.

We did order extra dissection pins. Also, the first kit we ordered was missing some tools. Customer service was great about fixing it!
Very Satisfied Review by
Although we have yet to dissect our specimens, we are thoroughly impressed with the tools and the dissection book. We have spent a lot of time studying the How To Dissect book and I am more than pleased with the value of this kit.
Awesome Variety in One Order! Review by
This was an awesome variety of animals, so we didn't have to choose. We were able to expose the students to several different animal dissections in one lesson. I loved that they did not need refrigeration. We're limited on space, so that was a huge benefit for us.
