Explore mammalian anatomy using Carolina's Perfect Solution® Preserved Pigs. Because pigs are larger than other common vertebrate specimens, they are ideal for students working in pairs or small groups. Conducting pig dissection in your classroom will allow your students to:

  • Learn vertebrate anatomy
  • Relate structure and function
  • Examine organs and organ systems
  • Investigate similarities in pig and human anatomy
  • Practice dissection skills

Carolina's Perfect Solution® is a proprietary fixative that produces the safest and highest quality specimens on the market. Perfect Solution® specimens are safe and non-toxic, produce no dangerous off-gassing, and require no special disposal. The life-like color and tissue texture allow students to easily identify structures and learn anatomy.

*Carolina's preserved pigs were not raised for the purpose of dissection; they are a byproduct of the pork industry. Most of the pigs were stillborn and would be discarded were they not reutilized for educational purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ability to see detail in the specimen I get all of my dissection specimens (cats, pigs, and frogs) from Carolina and I have never had a disappointing product. One of the biggest things my students like about them is the fact that they are able to distinguish between all the different organs, it doesn't look like just a tan or brown blob on the inside. The double color perfect solutions are the best for detail and being able to determine what is what in the body cavity. The second thing the kids really like is the fact they don't smell near as bad as our old specimens!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product works well for the curriculum and for those of us with allergies. I have used Carolina Perfect Solution specimens for as long as they have offered them. I am allergic to most preservation smells and this solution works far better for me. The fetal pig is cost efficient for my biology curriculum and the students are amazed at what they see and learn.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great and easy to see Great specimen, BUT TOO BIG FOR PANS. Next time I will order smaller ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Preserved Specimen The pig looked and felt like it could have been alive any moment before, except it was now cold and wet with shut eyes! This specimen's organs were all intact and it was a marvel to examine. Much better quality than many other preserved organisms I've seen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful ! This was not my first dissection but first pig. I love that things were perfect and ready for me. If I have another dissection, Carolina will be my first choice. Just took my quiz and because things on the fetal pig was clear, I was able to locate what I needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Packaging is better We have been using Carolina fetal pigs for many years. The double injected in the perfect solution has worked for us to keep the pigs fresh for up to 4 weeks while we study them in our Gen Bio Labs. Recently we have decided to switch from the pail packs to the bulk bag packs.. much improved, the pails were very heavy and hard to open, although they did take up less space than the bulk packed. We have been able to use pigs left from the previous year when kept in the pails, so we do order one pail each year., to go along with the bag packed pigs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Solution Pigs Carolina Perfect Solution pig specimens are the best specimens I've used in class for biology dissections. The smell is noticeable but not overwhelming like other specimens. Organs and internal structures of the double injected specimens are easier for the students to find and identify.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome, can be adapted for time This was SO GREAT!!!! Due to time constraints, I had to change my lab from having each lab table work to having us do one quick pig in class. The pig was big enough for all gathered to see, the organs were extremely well defined. It was simple to point out the similarities between human anatomy and the pig. Clear, concise, easily visible by each of the students, etc. This was especially easy for me to use since this was my first year at the High School level. LOVED IT and will be using it and others 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.
