Help on Re: [Histonet] Workshop on unusual beasties

From:Gayle Callis

For those going from clinical hospital histolabs and into research with 
animals, there is an Animal Processing Manual available from National 
Society for Histotechnology.  Go to for particulars on how to 
order this manual, it is not overly expensive.  It contains recommendations 
and guidelines for processing and fixation for all kinds of beasties, 
particularly marine animals and many other species.

Another good textbook is Humanson's Animal Tissue Techniques, Fifth Edition 
by Presnell JK and Schreibman MP,
ISBN# 0-8018-5401-6.

Also, if you are a member of NSH, you are can join the Veterinary Research 
and Industry (VIR) committee at no extra cost to access a membership list 
of people who list their expertises.  You can then contact them personally 
for information on animal histotechniques.  The NSH Hard Tissue committee 
is the same situation for those working on implants, bone, stents, plastics.
