Company History:

Nebraska Scientific offers a wide variety of educational science supplies to schools, colleges, and universities throughout North America. Nebraska Scientific is a division of Cyrgus Company, LLC., one of the nation's leading processors of preserved biological materials - preserved materials destined for in science classrooms around the world. Founded in 1960 near Boyd, Wisconsin, company founders recognized that by-products and waste products of the packing industry were ideal for study in biology, life science, and anatomy classrooms. Rather than allowing these by-products to go to waste, the company began preserving a wide range of beef, pig, and sheep organs for science classroom study. Fetal pigs, brains, eyes, and kidneys are just a few of the many materials which the company processes. 

Shortly after it was founded, the company moved to Omaha, Nebraska in order to be close to major livestock markets, and has remained headquartered there ever since. Nebraska Scientific, the retail division of the company, was formed in 1968 in response to demand from schools to buy direct from the processor.

Over the years, Nebraska Scientific expanded its offerings far beyond preserved specimens. Recognizing the need for students in non-dissecting classrooms to learn about anatomy use, the company has produced dissection DVD's and videos as alternatives and supplements to dissection. In addition to specimens, Nebraska Scientific now supplies a full range of over 2,000 educational science products for use in biology, anatomy, life science, and environmental science classrooms in all 50 states.
