Students can observe and measure how muscles contract. The muscles are shipped in glycerol which extracts most of the water soluble material leaving muscle tissue that can be identified and studied using a microscope. The muscle can also be stimulated to contract using the ATP chemical solution. There are enough materials for 15 groups.
