- Preserving human tissue is important in many different fields including the burial of the deceased, forensics, and education.
- For education, human cadavers and cadaveric specimens are expensive, but they continue to be an effective learning tool and are widely used by medical training programs for physicians, medical scientists, nurses, and anatomists.
- The costs for an anatomy lab can be minimized if they are protected with preserving formulas so they can be utilized for longer periods of time.
