Featuring Carolina's Perfect Solution® specimens

  • A fresh, new approach to a classic mammalian dissection
  • Forensic education that really engages students
  • Provides a real-world link
Capitalize on the current popularity of crime scene investigation TV with this unique forensic lab activity. Students conduct a pig dissection by modeling the protocols used by a pathologist for a human autopsy. They carefully record the external features and use a typical "Y" incision to open the body cavity for a detailed examination. Then they remove all of the organ systems. When students complete the forensic dissection, they return the organs to the body cavity and suture the incisions. A Carolina's Perfect Solution® adult pig heart and pig kidney are also included for comparison with the dissected specimen. A set of 7 prepared slides allows students to extend and enhance the dissection by examining some of the tissue types found within each system.

The detailed teacher's manual and student guide have autopsy instructions, extension activities, reproducible student sheets, background information, a glossary of terms, and dissection questions for discussion. Kit is for a class of up to 32 students.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the engagement level with this forensics unit My fifth graders loved performing the autopsy on the pigs. We were able to gather lots of interesting data as we identified, removed, then weighed and measured the different organs. We graphed our class data and looked for abnormalities with our data. It was interesting to hear the different inferences and conclusions that the students made about the pigs and their differences.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gotta love it my students love doing this dissection as an autopsy. They work carefully at the cuts then remove the organ systems intact. This allows them to easily see how they are connected before continuing with dissecting the organs themselves. It gives a different spin to a regular dissection lab.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Students Love This Lab! I have used this lab for several years and it is always a class favorite. The pigs last for at least six months allowing me to utilize grant funding for purchasing them. The smell is minimal. The guide, slides and other materials that come with the forensic dissection kit are very helpful and add a lot to the lab activity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product This forensic kit meets the needs of a middle school dissection unit perfectly. Students are involved and active throughout. The size of the pigs is perfect and there is enough variety for students to do comparisons. I would highly recommend this product to any middle school or high school science teacher needing a cost-effective, excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Students Favorite I have used the Forensic Dissection Kit for two years with 8th grade students. Over a two year period of time the students have studied all of the mammalian systems and this dissection is the best for observing the systems they have studied. Following the forensic protocal adds to student interest. The slides provided with the kit are excellent quality and enable the students to move through the entire activity in 4- 5 classes. I look forward to using the kit again.

Carolina's Perfect Solution Specimens

Carolina's Perfect Solution®—Safe. Convenient. Superior.

Our commitment to producing the finest preserved specimens on the market has led us to Carolina's Perfect Solution®, a unique, revolutionary fixative that is dramatically improving the quality of classroom dissection.

  • No formalin odor
  • No dangerous off-gassing
  • No dark and unnatural appearance

Instead, organisms preserved with Carolina's Perfect Solution® retain more lifelike color and texture. Because students study more natural-looking specimens, it is easier for them to identify the structures and, as a result, learn anatomy.

Carolina's Perfect Solution® specimens are safe and nontoxic, which means you need no special ventilation and there's no costly disposal.
