Rats are popular 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. Rats preserved in Carolina's Perfect Solution® have a superior, more natural-looking appearance.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great specimen The specimen was in great shape. I've ordered from other companies before and they have been dried out and hard to dissect. Carolina Biological carries superior products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product My students learned so much from the rat's internal organs. The pregnant rat was great because they saw all the little rat babies. I would definitely order this again next year

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality rats, but they were all female The rats worked much better than I thought, and at a school not set-up for specimen disposal, the rats were so much easier to clean-up and dispose compared to dissection of fetal pigs. HOWEVER, my entire bucket of 32 rats were all female, which was not what I was expecting -- I was hoping for a mix of rat sexes for comparison.

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 What a difference! I wear two hats at our local community college: lab manager and adjunct instructor for anatomy and physiology labs. Knowing the importance of inventory control, I use the older products before opening new merchandise. As I was overseeing a rat lab, I found myself one rat short and grabbed the next available specimen, which happened to be the Perfect Solution rat from Carolina. I had read the literature, but had not seen the actual product until that morning. As I incised the rat, I was immediately drawn to the realistic colors and uniformity of organs. I thought maybe I was persuaded because of the literature, so I compared the Perfect Solutions rat to the other rats being dissected. There simply was no comparison. The Perfect Solutions rat was, quite bluntly, beautiful. I will continue ordering these stunning specimens from Carolina, and recommend these rats to my colleagues and anyone else willing to listen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from dissection specimens of high quality The perfect solution rats were in very good shape and the injection made vasculature and cardiac chambers easy to identify.
