Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"...a carefully compiled collection of protocols that allow for study of many aspects of the neutrophil." -Doody's Book Review, Weighted Numerical Score:85-3 Stars"This excellent book is one of the latest in the 'Methods in Molecular Biology' series . . it comes beautifully presented and bound in a hardback cover and would grace any bookshelf. I would urge all self-respecting laboratories working with neutrophils - whether in research or diagnostics - to purchase one immediately. . I was impressed by this book's comprehensive provision of protocols, addressing all aspects of neutrophil function and physiology, and including an excellent section on diagnosis of both inherited and non-inherited neutrophil disorders." (Lynn Morgan, Immunology News, May, 2008)
