About this book


Microwave technology can significantly reduce sample turnaround times, enhance quality, and reduce hazardous wastes when compared to bench or automated methods. In Microwave Techniques and Protocols, Richard Giberson and Richard Demaree, Jr., have collected a wide range of these time-saving techniques for processing biological samples for evaluation by many different microscopic methods. Described in step-by-step detail by hands-on researchers, these readily reproducible protocols include both optimized classic methods and such state-of-the art techniques as in vivo labeling, formalin fixation of fresh tissue, vacuum processing, and processing for scanning electron microscopy. Each stand-alone microwave method has been handcrafted by a researcher who regularly uses it to ensure processing success and the highest quality result.
Comprehensive and time saving, Microwave Techniques and Protocols demonstrates for anyone processing biological samples for immunocytochemistry, decalcification, and light or electron microscopy that microwave technology is a critically important tool in all experimental and clinical research laboratories today.
