Since antibodies tagged with markers have been developed, immunocytochemistry has become the method of choice for identifying tissue substances or for the localisation of nucleic acid in tissue by in situ hybridisation. Resin-embedded tissue is routinely used and new techniques are constantly introduced. Thus, the novice entering these fields has a breathtaking variety of methods open to him. This labmanual covers the embedding of tissue using epoxy resin methods to the more sensitive procedures employing the acrylics. The possibilities and results are discussed so that an understanding of the techniques can be acquired and appropriate choices made. The various resins available and all steps involved in tissue processing, beginning with fixation, as well as the great variety of labelling methods and markers that are commonly used for "on-section" cytochemistry and immunocytochemistry are described, including detailed protocols for the application.

Industry Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This comprehensive and valuable book is a must-have for the immunohistochemical laboratory. It extensively covers the field of onsection immunocytochemistry, including epoxy and acrylic resins, a variety of embedding and immunolabelling protocols ... . It is the only book I know covering LR-White and -Gold, the different Lowicryls, and Unicryl in this comprehensive manner. ... it is a very helpful book and because of its extensive theoretical and practical reference a standard for the beginner as well as those already familiar with immunocytochemistry." (Jens Krieger, Microscopy and Analysis, September, 2002)
