METHOD OF COLOURING WET SPECIMEN IN ANATOMY

Lalit Kumar Jain, Hitesh Babel.

Abstract
Aim: To develop a technique to colour the various important structures of a specimen which can be kept in 10 percent formalin
filled jar in museum.
Methodology: Previously several workers used different regins to colour the specimen but we used camlin oil paints mixed with
white enamel paint to colour arteries, Veins, Nerves, Ligaments and Muscles of the specimens. These coloured specimens were
kept in 10 percent formalin filled jar.
Results: The painted colours remained stable in the formalin solution for several years without any visible changes. Conclusion:
Colouring the important structures by using the anatomically correct colours make the monochrome specimens more attractive
and lively and thus help students in identification and understanding of relations of various structures in a specimen.

Key words: Museum, Artery, Vein, Nerve, Oil paint, White enamel paint, Formalin solution
