Explore mammalian anatomy using Carolina's Perfect Solution® Preserved Pigs. Because pigs are larger than other common vertebrate specimens, they are ideal for students working in pairs or small groups. Conducting pig dissection in your classroom will allow your students to:

  • Learn vertebrate anatomy
  • Relate structure and function
  • Examine organs and organ systems
  • Investigate similarities in pig and human anatomy
  • Practice dissection skills

Carolina's Perfect Solution® is a proprietary fixative that produces the safest and highest quality specimens on the market. Perfect Solution® specimens are safe and non-toxic, produce no dangerous off-gassing, and require no special disposal. The life-like color and tissue texture allow students to easily identify structures and learn anatomy.

*Carolina's preserved pigs were not raised for the purpose of dissection; they are a byproduct of the pork industry. Most of the pigs were stillborn and would be discarded were they not reutilized for educational purposes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing! I'm really disappointed with these- ordered them for the safer preservative but I'm so unimpressed with the quality of the specimen. Red injection is impossible to see, and the pigs are absolutely covered in blue- the whole neck, liver, and random places throughout. I do dissection for kids to see the "real thing" and am so tired of telling the kids "it wouldn't really look like that." Preservative also seems to be inconsistent- some of the pigs have livers and other structures that are extremely brittle and deteriorate when you look at them (again, "it wouldn't really look like that").

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fetal Pig Bought fetal pig last month for my class and I am so glad I bought it from Carolina Perfect Solution. The fetal pig was perfect for my lab work. Carolina Perfect Solution was indeed my "perfect solution."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bio lab tutor The condition of the specimen was great and we could identify many organs. However the dye injection was not that helpful. I saw blue dye in a few places (Such as in the neck region and near the kidneys) and the liver had a bluish tinge. Not much red dye was seen. It didn't help with identifying vessels, not sure if the dye distributed correctly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solved the Issue The Carolina Perfect Solution solved the issue with nasal and eye irritation for our faculty and students. Specimen quality was still preserved and met the goals of the Zoology course. No big issues with latex blow out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty good I have always gotten good fetal pigs. This time one of the pigs had a lot of free blue liquid in its abdomen. My guess is that the latex leaked from somewhere after application. This made it difficult to dissect and appreciate all the organs. Fortunately, we had another fetal pig that the previous class had dissected to share.

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.
