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.

Dissection Kit Review by
Great kit - we ordered it to use with Bob Jones Biology - everything we needed was included plus extras! We were concerned that once we opened the kit the smell would be strong for storing the unused specimens but it isn't strong at all. You may want to order extra pins though - it takes a lot to hold open specimen for exploration. We are very happy with the quality.
Shocking -- but good Christmas present Review by
My daughter was not expecting this for a Christmas present, however, she has now started using it. The tool kit is of nice quality and the specimens are packaged very well. She started with the fish. She wishes the diagrams for dissection were a little more clear, but she was just interested in getting started rather than reading the little chapter about what to do.
Great Kit for the Biology Enthusiast Review by
I ordered this kit as a gift for my zoologist-wannabe daughter, and I was thrilled to see her reaction. Not only are there plenty of varied specimens to study, but the guidebook and tools are all there. I ordered a set of extra pins, and she is on her way to a better understanding of animal anatomy. Thanks for such a comprehensive offering. :)
My Son Will Love This Review by
This is a gift for my son and I am sure he will love this. The quality of the items in this kit are top notch and at a reasonable price. Thank you for the speedy service.
