Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for 7th grade! The hearts were easy to examine once open. The color was good and the perfect solution was excellent. The smell was very minimal and clean up was a snap. I wish the trays were bigger as the hearts were quite large and fluid spilled off the trays. Also, it would be handy if the kits came with a scalpel because the scissors were very tricky to use for cutting into the tissue. Overall we enjoyed the experience and learned a lot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but tough We ordered 3 hearts, only one heart was a good specimen. The other 2 were hard to figure out front/back because they were kind of smashed and really fatty. The kids had a good time and enjoyed it but it was hard to follow the instruction manual because we had a hard time figuring out the front vs. the back. Finally, we simply cut the heart right down the middle into 2 halves and were able to look at the vetnricles/atriums that way. The scissors were not easy to use, would have preferred scalpels instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from quality material with step by step instructions made it an easy learning tool. Came packaged with picture instructions that made it easy for students to know where to disect the organ so that they could clearly see the valves, chambers, and the thickness of the walls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the price The heart is easy to work with and was a cheap way for our group to present a presentation on anatomy in a humanities seminar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality EVERY time I order these!!!! We typically order 10-20 hearts at a time. They always arrive in excellent quality, perfect packaging, and often arrive earlier than promised.

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.
