Carolina Perfect Solution® Specimen Comparison

No need to compromise

What if you could provide your students with a higher quality preserved specimen and an enhanced dissection experience while at the same time improving the safety of your learning environment? Does this sound too good to be true? We have developed a preservation formula that produces superior specimens without compromising classroom or lab safety. Carolina’s Perfect Solution® addresses the need for an alternative to traditional formaldehyde-preserved specimens.

You and your students deserve—and we want you to have—the very best and safest preserved specimens available. Our unique preservation method provides slow firming action that results in more life-like tissues and organs with natural vivid colors and texture. Teachers and students that have worked with Carolina’s Perfect Solution® specimens in the past have consistently been impressed with what they have seen and experienced.

Independent, certified laboratory analysis of specimens fixed in Carolina’s Perfect Solution® have found them to be nontoxic and free of dangerous off-gassing. Classrooms and labs using Carolina’s Perfect Solution® specimens do not require specialized ventilation. However, some active ventilation is recommended when working with any preserved specimens or chemicals. The safe nature of Carolina’s Perfect Solution® also means that in most localities there are no mandated disposal requirements. Be sure to check with local sewer and landfill authorities, as procedures may vary.

Compare and see for yourself

To illustrate the effectiveness of Carolina’s Perfect Solution® in providing high-quality specimens, we have compared it to some “formaldehyde-free” alternatives. The external differences are evident, but the more striking differences appear internally after closer examination of the tissues and organs.
