MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"Immunohistochemistry: Basics and Methods, a new book that aims to make the technique accessible to a wide audience. ... The text is easy to read and practical ... . this book is an effective primer on the science and technique of immunohistochemistry. I would recommend ... particularly to those who are themselves doing a significant amount of hands-on immunohistochemistry or for those seeking to develop the technique in their department. Indeed anyone involved in the interpretation of immunohistochemistry would benefit from reading this book." (Colan Ho-Yen, ACP News, Spring, 2011)
