Best Answer

Canopic jars, used by the ancient Egyptians to hold and preserve the internal organs of mummified bodies, are not commonly used in their original form in modern times. However, the concept of preserving organs or storing biological samples is still relevant in various fields.

In medical and scientific contexts, we use containers such as vials, test tubes, or specimen jars to store and preserve biological materials, such as tissue samples or bodily fluids, for diagnostic, research, or transplantation purposes. These containers are designed to maintain the integrity and viability of the samples.
