Dear Bob,
The Romeis is something like the "histo-bible" in german speaking countries.
You can find it in every histolab, but it is really sad, that it is out of
print. The last edition from 1989 doesn't describe modern methods (ihc, in
situ) for the today's need. But it is the biggest collection of
histochemical methods I know (in German). So if you can get one, get it (and
sell it for the 10fold price).

I hope the editors of the Romeis will produce a modern edition.

Betreff: [Histonet] Romeis - was why do we use xylene

Barbara Bublava and Gudrun Lang mention Romeis, a reference book on
technique, often cited by R.D. Lillie. I've never seen this book - checked and it's out of print - do you think it's worth having a copy if
you can read German?
The book is Mikroscopische Technik, three postwar editions 1949, 1968, 1989,
by Benno Romeis and Peter Boeck.

I'll announce my retirement! - since I turn 68 in a month -
