Handbook of Histopathological and Histochemical Techniques (Including Museum Techniques), Third Edition is a reference guide on techniques used in histology and histochemistry, including museum techniques.
This book is comprised of 36 chapters divided into six sections. After giving a brief description of the structure and contents of the cell, this book then turns to the various methods of examination of tissue cells and structures, including the smear method, vital staining, and electron microscopy. The next two sections deal with fixation, decalcification, processing, and section cutting, along with stains, impregnations, and mountants. An exhaustive survey of carbohydrate and protein histochemistry is included. Special procedures such as autoradiography, micro-incineration, and injection techniques are described. The remaining chapters focus on the preparation, mounting, and presentation of museum specimens. The book concludes with an analysis of the microscope.
This monograph will be invaluable to all those with an interest in histology and histochemistry, including undergraduate students in the biological and health sciences, pathologists in both the hospital setting and experimental research, and technologists and workers in various research fields.
