The landscape of immunocytochemistry has significantly evolved in past years. Once a laborious technique with limited application, the introduction of new detection systems and instrumentation has facilitated the widespread use of immunocytochemical methods. In the post-genomic era, the use of immunocytochemical methods has grown to include the identification of a broad spectrum of antigens including proteins, carbohydrates and lipids from virtually every organism. In Immunocytochemical Methods and Protocols, Third Edition, expert researchers explore the modern methods employed in the field today,  now widely used to identify, in situ, various components of cells and tissues in both normal and pathological conditions, and to demonstrate the localization of subcellular components. Chapters provide methods that are designed to be general in their application and to appeal to investigators across all disciplines, including those in research and clinical settings. Composed in the highly successful Methods in Molecular BiologyT series format, chapters contain a brief introduction, step-by-step methods, a list of necessary materials, and a Notes section which shares tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Comprehensive and ground-breaking,  Immunocytochemical Methods and Protocols, Third Edition, brings together a variety of methods that are normally limited to applications in a specific area, providing a unique and vital guide for researchers and clinicians alike.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:"This book targets not only immunologists but a very broad readership. . very well-written and will be equally useful for a complete beginner to the technique, as well as for a scientist who has been using the methods for years. . I would recommend this book in particular to researchers who start to use immunocyto/histochemistry in their work . . The book should also be considered by laboratories that would like to have a reference for reliable immunostaining protocols." (Anna Vossenkaemper, Immunology News, August, 2010)
