Dear Histonetters,

Forgive me for either phrasing my previous request too
ambiguously or for sounding a bit too lazy. I think the
question was reasonable considering that two private
responses I have received asked me to forward any private
responses answering my original request. Of course, there
were no privately send answers nor public replies on the
listserv. So, I will ask again.

I would appreciate recommendations for a general,
comprehensive reference source for histological sample prep,
fixing, staining techniques if one exists. A college level
text book may be what I am looking. Our bookstore doesn't
have what I need and the web booksellers don't really give
adequate information about available books to make a
reasonable judgement.

There are many histology books available at the library.
However,I would prefer a more current collection of
protocols (than my library owns, anyway). I know, I know,
there is really nothing new in histology.... except that
half the reagents used in those were hazardous in one way or
another and have been replaced in current protocols.

There are also many decent internet histology sites. They
contain much information but I haven't found one which I
would consider complete or comprehensive. Feel free to
recommend any sites that I might have missed.

Thanks again,

Kevin Smith
