Histotechnology: A Self-instructional Text 2nd Edition

Price: $95.00

Author: Freida Carson, HT(ASCP), PhD

Advances in histotechnology continue to expand the capabilities of the
histopathology laboratory, but also require continual study by practitioners
to remain current. The second edition of Histotechnology; A
Self-Instructional Text presents all the latest advances as well as the
fundamentals that are critical to achieving the highest quality work.
Written as both reference and teaching tool Histotechnology; A
Self-Instructional Text addresses the essentials of preparing histology
specimens including staining and processing, laboratory safety issues, and
immunohistochemistry in fourteen instructional units. Electron microscopy
and enzyme histochemistry have been added to this edition to help
histotechnologists preparing for the HTL(ASCP) certifying examination. Each
unit presents the learning objectives of the section, explains and
illustrates the technique, and then gives specific learning activities that
will reinforce the information. Written as both a teaching tool and
reference, the format also makes troubleshooting fast and easy.

Histotechnology is an excellent learning tool for histologic technic
students, and for residents and pathologists seeking to expand their
understanding of the technology used in the histopathology laboratory. It is
equally well suited as a desk reference for the more common special staining
techniques and their results.
