Bancroft Theory and Practice of Histological Techniques

Bancroft Theory and Practice of Histological Techniques  Seventh Edition free download. Bancroft Theory and Practice of Histological Techniques  written by S. Kim Suvarna, Christopher Layton and John D. Bancroft.

In the 35 years since the first edition of this book, the histological laboratory has changed dramatically. Whilst some techniques of tissue selection, fixation and section production have remained relatively static, there have been great advances in terms of immunological and molecular diagnostic methodology. Immunohistochemistry  now have well-defned roles with quality assurance realities, and are to be found throughout the world with pivotal interactions with tissue diagnosis and patient management. In the last 20 years, the progressive development of molecular techniques revolving around DNA and in situ hybridization has permitted the creation of new genetic tests and diagnostic opportunities for the laboratory. These are currently at the forefront of guiding treatment choices for patients. At the same time, these have permitted review of some classic histological tests resulting in a reduced histochemical repertoire in many laboratories. Knowledge of both the old and new is required by trained, as well as trainee, histotechnologists working alongside the pathologist. A thorough grounding in all these aspects of diagnostic methodology is still required. Some of chapters of old edition of Bancroft Theory and Practice of Histological Techniques  had been removed. These include the chapters on lipids, proteins and nucleic acids, neuroendocrine system and cytoplasmic granules and enzyme histochemistry. This has allowed for expansion and update in some areas, particularly the newer diagnostic methodologies. There are a number of new contributors for this edition. They include Louise Dunk, who contributed the management chapter and Anthony Rhodes, who updated fixation of tissues. The gross room/surgical cut-up chapter has been rewritten by Kim Suvarna and Christopher Layton. The pigment and minerals chapter has been revamped by Guy Orchard and the amyloid chapter by Janet Gilbertson and Tony Hunt. Neuropathology has been rewritten by Robin Highly and Nicky Sullivan. Some immunohistochemistry and immunofluorescence techniques have required a rewrite
