VIR Animal Processing Manual
The VIR (Veterinary, Industry, and Research) Committee of the National
Society for Histotechnology has done a wonderful job in producing an Animal
Processing Manual. It was edited by Gayle Callis and Diane Sterchi and they
did a terrific job of collating procedures for processing everything from
small animals to large animals, from birds and chickens to marine and
reptiles. There are sections on processing dental tissue, eyes, bone, and
dense tissues such as a horse hoof. Plastic processing is also included. If
you process animal tissue, you need this manual. It is available from NSH
for $30 for members and $50 for non-members, and it includes a CD-ROM. It is
listed on the NSH web site at www.nsh.org.
Thanks again Gayle and Diane.
