RE: [Histonet] History of Histology

From:"Ryan, John P."


A book titled "A History of Microtechnique" written by Brian Bracegirdle (one of the Science Heritage Collection of books) states in the foreward that it was written to "traces the origins and development of the manipulations needed to prepare specimens for examination by the light microscope. It also has an extensive bibliography on the type of information you are looking for. I have a copy if you are unable to locate one.

Happy Wednesday (or Thursday) Netters
I'm in the process of a small project and need to see if you know a book or website that talks about early histology procedures. Who was the first one to use a fixative, dehydrant, clearing agent and infiltration wax? How we developed from jars to automatic processors, etc. My wrists are sore from surfing. I Googled up to 2,000,000 hits. I think I've developed carpal tunnel syndrome. My fingers are numb. Thanks in advacne (see) JTT _______________________________________________
