Formalin Perch, 9"+, Double Injection, 1 Per Bag

Product Highlights
  • Preserved in a classic tissue fixative
  • Budget friendly
  • Soaked in Carosafe®, a formaldehyde-free solution


Product Details
Perch are vertebrates in the class Osteichthyes, the bony fishes. These are the traditional dissection specimens used in life science courses when studying the external and internal anatomy of bony fish. Unlike the other classes of fish, these specimens possess a bony skeleton, an operculum that covers the gills, and a swim bladder.

As students dissect the perch, they:

  • Explore the connection between structure and function
  • Study regulation and behavior
  • Investigate bony fish adaptations

Product Features

  • Double injected (red arteries and blue hepatic system) for in-depth study of the arterial and hepatic portal systems
  • Soaked in Carosafe®, then individually packed and shipped in a vacuum-sealed bag for easy distribution
  • Price listed is for 1 specimen

Carosafe® preservative and holding solution for biological specimens contains no formaldehyde and is not a tissue fixative. Most Carosafe® specimens were first preserved with a formalin solution and then washed before placement in Carosafe®. Specimens are held in Carosafe® prior to shipment, producing formalin-preserved specimens that, when dissected, minimize formaldehyde exposure. Learn More.
