Abstract

Traditional histological methods give a more in-depth view of tissue as a whole, providing the possibility to see the interactions between all of the cells present and, when used in conjunction with immunohistochemical studies, can reveal a great deal of detail. ‘Histological and Histochemical Methods, Theory and Practice’ gives the art and science of histology the full credit it deserves.

This book is an exceptional reference guide that we would highly recommend to any researcher interested in studying microscopic anatomy/morphology. The layout of the book is excellent, allowing the reader to quickly find exactly what they are looking for. All the major techniques are covered, and in each case the theory and method are explained, and detailed guidance on protocols and potential modifications given. Modern techniques of immunohistochemistry as well as some traditional techniques, such as Protargol silver reduction, are covered in detail. Comprehensive coverage of suitable controls, often omitted from studies, is also provided.
