General description

A new edition of the standard text-reference covering the full range of histological techniques used in medical laboratories and pathology departments. Written for histotechnologists in training and in practice, the book provides a thorough grounding in all aspects of histological technology, from basic methods of section preparation and staining to advanced diagnostic techniques such as immunohistochemistry and cytology. It provides a balance between the new and the older techniques.
