Description: PM1.901 Bulls eyes, Preserved
These specimens are ideal if you are looking at the structures of the eye.
A preserved eye is easier to dissect than a frozen (thawed) eye, as it holds its shape better.
This allows students to examine the individual components of the eye, such as the retina.
Qty: Pk of 5 eyes
- These specimens do not require refrigeration.
- Bull eyes are preserved using a formalin/phenol solution and should be treated with care, and used and disposed of accordingly.
- When dissecting specimens they should be washed before use and dissected in well ventilated rooms with appropriate hand, eye and body protection.
- Specimens for display may be submersed in 70% Ethanol.
- For best results, carefully unpack your delivery of preserved specimens as soon as it arrives. Store the specimens in the dark in a single layer on a flat surface. A drawer or cupboard shelf is ideal.
- Avoid stacking the specimens on top of each other or otherwise putting weight on them. Undue pressure can cause breakages in brittle specimens such as crayfish and grasshoppers, and can cause deformation of soft-tissue specimens such as brains and kidneys.
