Formalin is a versatile chemical solution composed of about 37% formaldehyde gas dissolved in water. Renowned for its wide-ranging applications, it is primarily used for the preservation of biological specimens in laboratories, ensuring the integrity and longevity of tissues and samples for research, diagnostics, and education. Additionally, formalin serves as a potent disinfectant, finding application in sterilizing surgical instruments and equipment in healthcare settings, as well as for general surface and space disinfection. Beyond healthcare and research, formalin plays a vital role in various industrial processes, such as textile and leather manufacturing, where it acts as a fixative and stabilizing agent. Its diverse uses underscore its importance in both scientific and industrial realms, making it an indispensable chemical solution with a multitude of practical applications.

For many learners high school is not enough to prepare them for what they are to face at first year university. They find themselves completely overwhelmed and intimidated by what is expected of them to be able to do in a laboratory.

Unfortunately many learners who want to pursue science subjects go through this dilemma, few as they are because fact is SA is not producing enough learners who will become engineers, doctors, science researchers, let alone science innovators.

To address this, we developed a chemistry kits with 52 experiments for use by learners at home. This gives them an opportunity to gain hand-on exposure and engagement, confidence and understanding they need to study sciences further.

The kit comes with a manual explaining how science is experienced in daily life and therefore brings awareness of the application and usefulness of science, helping the learner relate to what they learn at school.

Some schools do have kits where only the teacher demonstrates the experiments and this is great, but you don’t master driving by watching the driving instructor, you must get in the driver’s seat yourself.
