Is your class safe from VOCs? We put dissection specimens to the test.

Keep your classroom safe from VOCs

Every science teacher knows dissection units can be a challenge. Students can express disgust merely at the sight of a specimen, but nothing brings on the moans and groans more than the unfamiliar and offensive smells they can produce. Of course, knowing that these odors can be caused by harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like acetone and glutaraldehyde can result in anxiety in parents and administrators as well.

That’s why we created Ward’s Pure Preserved™ specimens, to keep distracting odors out of the air and harmful chemicals out of students’ lungs. Watch us put Ward’s Pure Preserved™ to the test against an industry-leading competitor’s specimen using a sensor that detects airborne VOCs.

Bring your classroom dissection without distraction with Ward’s Pure Preserved™ specimens – the safest, highest-quality specimens in the marketplace.
