    DACCA has a new version of their handbook. It is very easy to understand
and fairly short. Theory and troubleshooting are also both covered. I highly
recommend it as a "gettin yer feet wet" book.
    If you know anyone in other labs that would be willing to part with
expired reagents, you could get the basics down without spending an arm and
a leg on trial runs. Most commercial IHC kits are very easy to use. Everyone
has a favorite that they swear by. Call a few sales reps and see what works
for you. They should be able to provide you with anything you need in
directions and documentation to start up.
