Formaldehyde, I believe...meh, I guess it depends on the person. I didn't mind the blood, except maybe the pig heart/lung dissection where it was straight from the slaughterhouse and not preserved at all. That was a bit intense
I found it really hard to eat lunch after seeing the cadavers, though--particularly meat :S
As for the goggles, I don't remember using them at all. Ideally, blood isn't actually squirting everywhere, that just happened once by accident while doing hematocrit/blood typing, and the girl only sprayed herself with her blood, no one else was close enough (luckily!)...the cow eyeball dissection might also be an issue, since it tends to squirt....
They'll tell you for sure if you need goggles, though--just because I don't remember using them, that doesn't mean we didn't lol.
I liked the hands-on part of the labs...not so much the tutorial part
