Microwave Fixation of Labile Metabolites book cover

Microwave Fixation of Labile Metabolites

Since its introduction in 1970, the utilization of microwave irradiation to inactivate enzymes and prevent degradation of cellular components has been increasingly employed in biological resaerch. This volume reviews current knowledge of the technique, with special reference to studies on the central nervous system

For neuroscientists, pharmacologists and psychologists

Included in series
