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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great hands on lab Students enjoy doing an autopsy and the specimens are good quality. We had a few that were smaller and more difficult to use but overall excellent hands on activity for forensic science.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I ordered these pigs a few years ago for my class and they were great. The pigs were nice and large which made it easy for my students to identify organs. However, this new batch of pigs are barely larger than some rats that we dissected. I am disappointed with the size of the pigs. Otherwise they are fine. I don't think I will order again simply because I can get twice as many rats for the same price and each student can have one of their own instead of sharing these tiny pigs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product! I teach a forensic science class and this is the highlight of the course. The students love using the autopsy protocol and are really engaged in the learning activities. The manual and student pages are extremely well written and easy to understand. I use this product over a time span of several weeks in conjuction with other autopsy activities. The perfect solution specimens are terrific and the tissues/organs retain great lifelike color. The kit contains everything I need to teach this unit and is very cost effective for us. Thanks, Carolina!

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.
