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 small group of students working together at 1 station.

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.
