Authors: Anthony S-Y Leong (University of Newcastle, Newcastle, Australia and Peking Univ., PRCChina) 
Book Description:
This book is unique in that it is written by an author who is a pioneer in microwave technology and has made numerous original contributions in the field. His expertise in diagnostic immunohistochemistry combines well with microwave technology because the invaluable contributions of microwave antigen retrieval have been a major influence in the adoption of immunohistology as an indispensable adjunct to routine morphological diagnosis.

The history and theoretical aspects of the technology are discussed and details of many routine procedures developed by both the author and by others are presented. There is detailed coverage of the applications of microwaves for antigen retrieval and the impact of this technology on tumor diagnosis. The volume is amply illustrated and written in a clear concise manner with recipes and procedures laid out in detail step by step. Techniques for both light microscopy and ultrastructural studies are covered and these include applications for tissue fixation, tissue processing, demineralization, frozen section microscopy, histochemical and immunohistochemical staining and antigen retrieval.
This volume will be of interest to all who use microwaves in both diagnostic pathology or research.
