[Histonet] RE: Polak and von Noorden book title correction

From:"C.M. van der Loos"

   Hi all,

   I  don't  think  that  Gayle  is  the one who should apologize for her
   "mistake"   with  respect  to  the  terms  "immunohistochemistry"  and
   "immunocytochemistry".  In  fact  she  was  right. I had the honour to
   discuss  this  over with Susan van Noorden in London a couple of years
   ago. She  agreed  with  me that those two terms are not always used in
   the   right   way.   Especially   after  she  saw  our very  different
   immunoenzymatic  staining results of anti-IFNgamma on intact cells and
   tissue  sections  from embedded  cells  (that  was my topic of the NSH
   international  lecture  in 2001 - Charlotte. NC). To my opinion it's a
   bit   missed   chance   that   the  authors  continue  with  the  term
   "immunocytochemistry" where mostly tissue work is concerned. I totally
   agree   with   Phil  McArdle that  "immunohistochemistry"  stands  for
   immunoenzymatic  staining of tissue sections and "immunocytochemistry"
   for the immunoenzymatic staining of cell specimens.
