This chapter will cover the basics of the physical instruments recommended for a gross anatomy laboratory in which a dissection-based class is conducted. The specifics of the acquisition and maintenance of the anatomical materials, and the design of a laboratory for today’s learners, are covered in previous chapters of this section. Here, we focus more specifically on the physical attributes of the equipment in the room, rather than the room itself.
