For the utmost in safety, specimens are packed in 8 oz. jars filled with WARDsafe, our exclusive holding fluid that’s been independently tested and found to be nonsensitizing to skin and nonirritating. The clear PETG jars are semi-flexible, yet are as clear as glass, so you can pass these jars around for individual student observation without fear of breakage. Labeling on the jars’ lids provides students with an unobstructed view inside, or specimens can be removed from jars for more intense scrutiny.
This set features 24 specimens representing six phyla of Monerans and Fungi. Some lichens are also included.
