Using the pig heart—which is almost identical to a human's—students learn about the basic anatomy of all mammalian hearts. This kit provides a step-by-step student guide (with labeled color images) for 1 or 2 students to participate in an introductory-level dissection activity that includes locating and identifying external and internal features of the heart. Also comes with a teacher's manual with instructional tips and additional resources.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for teaching the hearts anatomy! 3d time that I’ve used this kit. As always, I’m very happy with it. From shipping and cost to dissecting it is a great kit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great heart Absolutely fantastic! Great specimens- valves, heart strings easy to identify. My students truly enjoyed this! Easy to trace/visualize how blood would flow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My (slightly twisted) daughter loves it! I bought this for my 12 year old daughter, along with a scalpel. She absolutely loved it! She had so much fun learning about the anatomy of the heart!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heart Dissection Kit Bought this two weeks ago and the heart came well preserved and wrapped, needed a scalpel and a hazardous waste disposal bag when I was done though. I would couple it with an interactive dissecting site for the students that opt out, and to ensure that the lesson meets NGSS standards add a design/ project based challenged related to heart disease.

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.

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.
