Frog Dissection Kit

Item# DE-KITFROG

Get everything you need for dissecting a frog! This complete dissection kit comes with an extra-large preserved grass frog (double-injected so you can clearly see veins and arteries) plus all the dissection tools you need: full-color photographic dissection guide, #22 broad-blade scalpel, scissors, plastic forceps, pins, and a dissecting tray.

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 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.

Came in handy Review by
I really liked this kit, however I was a little disappointed with the tray. It was not very durable.
Overall good kit - improvements could be made Review by
This was a great kit for a last minute order, and the price was reasonable. We did have our own tools - which was fortunate since the tray they supplied would be useless. Also, I wish they provided a lab with descriptions specific to the dyes they used and their effects on the various organs. The lab I had in the classroom had very different pictures.

That said, the frog was large, not too smelly, and did the trick in terms of providing an excellent learning experience for the kids.
Excellent quality Review by
These kits were perfect for our dissection experience. The included guides were helpful, and basic tools needed to complete the dissection were included, as well as step by step instructions on how to proceed. I do agree with other reviews that the pins didn't really work well, but they managed. I think it is more an issue with the foam tray being thin, so they just don't have much to stick into to hold them in place.
not great Review by
We ordered 2 of these kits to use in conjunction with a lesson that we were doing as part of a middle-school homeschool biology curriculum. Our frogs were quite large, but nevertheless, we ran into some problems with the kit. The specimens were highly dyed and a bit desiccated, to the point that it was hard to identify many organs. Also, the styrofoam tray is far too thin to allow the pins to stick into it. As a result, the pins were useless and the specimen kept moving around. On the plus side, the kit did include all the necessary tools: scalpel, scissors, tweezers. Could have used a proper probe, though.
Frog Dissection Kit Review by
Shipped promptly & arrived earlier than anticipated. Great size frog, larger than expected which was great for first time bisection lab. Kit complete, great for homeschooling students. Styrofoam tray a bit thin and pins wouldn't say in. We used a cookie tray to place the Styrofoam tray on it. Small guide included helpful, however homeschool book provided more info. No overwhelming smell like when I was a student, years ago. Very, very mild smell of formaldehyde. Makes bio class much more interesting. Affordable.
