This is a brand new edition of the leading reference work on histological techniques. It is an resource suited to all those involved with histological preparations. This article is available as HTML full text and PDF. fibres containing fat was determined using the Oil Red O staining technique (Bancroft and Gamble, ) . Sep 23, In the 35 years since the first edition of this book, the histological laboratory has changed dramatically. Whilst some techniques of tissue.
All the theoretical aspects of techniques are discussed and the practical details set out step by step in each section.
Apart from the editors there are 30 other contributors. The editors have rnade attempts to reduce the cost by cutting down on the size of the book and omitting colour illustrations.
Theory and practice of histological techniques. John D. Bancroft, Marilyn Gamble
The book is still substantial with pages and it is particularly impressive in that it covers basic techniques of autoradiography as well as museum techniques for preserving and mounting specimens. The more modern techniques of molecular genetics and in situ hybridization techniques are understandably not included in this book. This book should be a standard reference book for all histopathology and research laboratories.
This book, as stated in the preface by Professor Tsieh Sun, was written following a lengthy experience and interest in reporting electrophoretograms. His obvious zeal has generated new disciples in the art and beauty of electrophoresis.
There are 15 chapters covering a general introduction; clinical significanceof plasma proteins, the complement system, immunoglobulin abnormalities, basic principles and techniques in protein electrophoresis, serum protein electrophoresis, electrophoresis of the urine, electrophoresis of the CSF, immunoelectrophoresis,immunofwation electrophoresis and immunoblotting, quantitation of heavy and light chains, lipoprotein analysis, lactate dehydrogenase isoenzymes, CK isoenzymes and acid phosphatase isoenzymes.
The balance of material between chapters is excellent. This book is well illustrated with diagrams and tables, and is printed on high quality paper.
The author has endeavoured to give a very practical insight into the positive and negative aspects of electrophoresis excuse the pun. However certain points could have been better presented, for example, the use of the term normal and reference ranges instead of the correct term of reference intervals, and the use of aspartate transaminase instead of asparate aminotransferase.

SI units could have been given along with the conventional units as the book is meant for a world-wide market. Chapter 3 contains an excellent review of the complement system.
Chapter 5 is an excellent chapter on principles and techniques of electrophoresis. In Chapter 6 the section on EPG report formatting was disappointing.
Chapters 7, 8, and 9 are straightforward although figure 9. Chapter 11 provides the reader with informative suggestions about the value of a mathematical procedure not commonly utilized in this country. For tissues to be cut in a frozen state, tissues are placed in a water-based embedding medium.
Pre-frozen tissues are placed into molds with the liquid embedding material, usually a water-based glycol, OCT , TBS , Cryogel, or resin, which is then frozen to form hardened blocks. Main article: Microtome Histologic sample being cut on a microtome. For light microscopy, a knife mounted in a microtome is used to cut tissue sections typically between micrometers thick which are mounted on a glass microscope slide.

When the stain is used to target a specific chemical component of the tissue and not the general structure , the term histochemistry is used. The Nissl method for Nissl substance and Golgi's method and related silver stains are useful in identifying neurons are other examples of more specific stains.
More commonly, autoradiography is used to visualize the locations to which a radioactive substance has been transported within the body, such as cells in S phase undergoing DNA replication which incorporate tritiated thymidine , or sites to which radiolabeled nucleic acid probes bind in in situ hybridization. For autoradiography on a microscopic level, the slide is typically dipped into liquid nuclear tract emulsion, which dries to form the exposure film.
Individual silver grains in the film are visualized with dark field microscopy. Main article: immunohistochemistry Recently, antibodies have been used to specifically visualize proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids. This process is called immunohistochemistry , or when the stain is a fluorescent molecule, immunofluorescence.Tools Request permission Export citation Add to favorites Track citation.

No longer are histopathologists and morphologists content with basic hematoxylin and eosin stained sections for surgical diagnosis. Step 20 - Use an Appropriate Schedule An appropriate schedule is chosen for the tissue type and size.
More commonly, autoradiography is used to visualize the locations to which a radioactive substance has been transported within the body, such as cells in S phase undergoing DNA replication which incorporate tritiated thymidine , or sites to which radiolabeled nucleic acid probes bind in in situ hybridization.
