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.
