Learn mammalian anatomy with the Rat Dissection Kit from Anatomy Warehouse!

The Rat Dissection Kit is the perfect addition to your anatomy and physiology lessons. Perfect for home, classroom, or laboratory dissections, this kit features a preserved 7-9” plain injected rat specimen, PPE, medical-grade tools, and an educational dissection guide. Rat dissection specimens are great for learning mammalian organs, systems, and structures. The rat’s internal anatomy provides a glimpse into human anatomy as the organs and organs systems are similar to each other.

Study and observe mammalian external and internal anatomy with the Rat Dissection Kit. This kit is great for practicing the dissection process from beginning to end, as well as for knowing how internal organs and parts intersect within the body. Understand comparative anatomy and the effects of evolution and ecology with the finely preserved specimen and the detailed educational guide that comes with the kit. The educational dissection guide features the step-by-step process, as well as illustrations to help guide the student.

For biology, microbiology, anatomy, physiology, and zoology students, this kit provides a hands-on learning experience. Each component of the kit allows for a safe and effective dissection procedure:

  • 1 Preserved rat specimen, 7-9”, plain injected
  • 1 Pair of disposable gloves, medium
  • 1 Disposable apron, one size
  • 1 Rat dissection guide

Shelf Life and Storage

Take Care of Your Specimen

Specimens should be stored at room temperature and out of direct sunlight whether they are opened or unopened.

While dissecting your specimen, spraying the specimen with holding fluid will help keep the specimen moist, which will allow you to maximize your time with the specimen.

After dissection, spray your specimen generously with holding fluid before storing your specimen in an air-tight container. By following these guidelines, you can reduce the number of bacteria, mold, or other air particles on the specimen that will help inhibit mold growth.

Properly Store Your Specimen for Longevity

Unopened specimens are guaranteed to stay fresh for up to a year. With proper storage, this specimen can last for years if you store your specimen out of direct sunlight and keep it at room temperature.

Opened specimens are under no guarantee. Once a specimen is opened, it is up to you to care and store the specimen properly to extend the life of the specimen. Typically, our specimens should last a couple of weeks when properly cared for.
