Rats have become increasingly popular as dissection specimens for exploring mammalian anatomy. These fully developed animals display mature organs and organ systems for students to examine skeletal, muscular, and reproductive structures. The rat body plan allows for close comparison to human anatomy, rats are convenient to dissect with little fluid in the body cavity, and they are economical.

Carolina's Perfect Solution® rats are preserved and shipped in our unique formula that creates a superior, more natural-looking specimen. Tissues and organs are extremely lifelike and retain better color and texture than with other preparations.

Carolina's Perfect Solution® rats are safe and free of formalin odor. Setup, dissection, and disposal are hassle-free.

Size, 7"+. Plain: No color injection. Packed in pails. Prices listed are for 1 specimen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value for the price! I prefer to have my Biology 1 students dissect the Perfect Solution rats, as they are a less expensive alternative to the fetal pigs. The organs in the rats are well preserved, retaining their natural color and shape as opposed to some of the fetal pigs. I highly recommend these as dissection specimens on a budget.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great organ visibility The internal organs of the rat were very much intact and easily visible and distinguishable from each other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is an excellent value. I teach anatomy and physiology and use these rats for standard dissection. They are easy for my high school students to manipulate, the odor is almost non-existent, the chance of getting a pregnant female is high in a grouping of seven to ten, and the double injected circulatory system is a bonus for teaching.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for High School! These rats are in a chemical that doesn't smell very much (kids said it smells like expo marker or sharpie) and they hold up really well over the 3 days we dissect. The one thing I was disappointing in this time was that most of the rats were female - we ordered 60 and only had 4 males. Usually we have a good mix of males and females but not this time which is pretty disappointing for the kids who want to see the male rats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Solution Rats Great Preserved Specimens. Internal organs were well preserved and color was terrific. Pregnant Rat was one of the best specimens I have ever purchased for an Anatomy class.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value, Great Quality I first used a Perfect Solution specimen at a Carolina NSTA workshop. It was pristine, the color, texture and delicate organs had been perfectly preserved. I ordered a set of rats for the next school year and haven't looked back. Definitely worth the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 9 out of 10 I have been purchasing preserved rats for my school for 6 years, but just recently tried the PerfectSolution rats. They look more natural, the chemical smell is less than that of formalin, and they have a softer texture, making them easier to cut and manipulate. The organ colors are usually good, but they sometimes have an unrealistic brownish/tan appearance. I recommend them to my colleagues as the best choice for preserved rats out there, and I buy other animal specimens in PS whenever possible.

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.
