Cellular Pathology Technique aims to maintain the twin objectives of producing a comprehensive bench book and a text for students that will take the Special Examination in Cellular Pathology of the Institute of Medical Laboratory Sciences. The organization of this fourth edition has been reshaped. Some sections were expanded such as those about the theory of staining, and new chapters were added dealing with immunolocalization, the endocrine system, and quantification. This book is organized into 10 parts. The introductory part provides basic information on cells and tissues and outlines the methodology in cellular pathology techniques. This is followed by chapters that deal with various aspects of cellular pathology including tissues, cells and cell products of special interests, electron microscopy, and immunocytochemistry. This book will be of interest to students of cellular pathology and those in the medical profession.
