Add the excitement of forensic science to your next feline anatomy lesson. By following a cat necropsy protocol typically used by veterinarians, this kit offers a thorough exploration of mammalian anatomy. It provides sufficient materials for 15 groups of 2 students to perform all of the activities. Each pair of students performs a cat necropsy, completing a full external and internal investigation of the cat. Student teams identify and examine all major tissues, organs, and systems. Each team gets a true representation of cat anatomy by examining its own specimen and having the opportunity to compare it to the specimens of other teams. The necropsy is intended to be conducted over several weeks, but you can customize it to fit your schedule by adding or removing activities. To complement the necropsy, the kit includes 20 professionally prepared histology slides representing each of the major organs. Also included are 15 premium Carolina's Perfect Solution® Double-Injected 18"+ Cats; 15 plastic storage bags and waterproof student name tags; Carolina's Wetting Solution (to help maintain moisture and keep tissue pliable and easy to work with for an extended period of time); and a teacher's manual with reproducible student guide that has clearly labeled color photographs, line drawings, and clear, concise background information and instructions.

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.
