Abstract

Dessicated organs used for teaching purposes are susceptible to insect damage as well as damage due to improper handling. Injection of expanding foam products into the lumen of dessicated organs followed by varnishing produces anatomical specimens resistant to insect damage and more resilient to the strains of handling. This study will describe the production of such specimens.
