Q:     What should I do to keep the specimens in good condition?
A:      We recommend keeping the specimens in a cool, dry place. Wrap specimens up as air tight as possible. Spray a Lysol type air disinfectant 1 to 2 times a week. Clean pans, tools, tables with warm soapy water and dry well. If you'd like you can use Bio Shield or a diluted Lysol floor cleaner on the specimens to keep mold away
