Description

The skeleton preparation facilities include all equipment necessary for defleshing and degreasing animal skeletons from horse size to small birds, to a required standard. The facilities include three large freezers and a fridge. Two induction heaters (hobs) and suitable pots are used for simmering and boiling, and a temperature probe can be used to maintain water at a constant temperature. A modified incubator is available where required for enzyme treatment.
