Principles and Techniques in Histology, Microscopy, and Photomicrography is an essential tool for all biologists using light microscopes. This book distinguishes itself from other books on histological techniques in being a textbook, a laboratory manual and a practical guide. The book discusses in detail main principles governing the processing of biological specimens and step-by-step procedures used. Information is presented in the same sequence as it is needed in the laboratory and is illustrated wherever appropriate. Part I of this book describes the technical background and common problems and errors in paraffin section cutting and their remedies. It also includes special procedures for the staining of primary tissues of the body. Part II of the book deals with principles and theory of proper use of various types of microscopes, including the transmission electron microscope, and methods of measurements of cells. Part III of the book brings together general guidelines for photographic processes and technical details of photomicrography in order to enable students to get optimum outputs of their research data. Even glazing of prints and enlargements and mounting of transparencies have been dealt with.
