About Zbigniew Darzynkiewicz
John P. Robinson is a Professor of Sociology at the University of Maryland, College Park. Dr. Robinson founded and directed the Survey Research Center at the University of Maryland and the Communication Research Center at Cleveland State University. He has published more than 100 articles in professional journals and books and is a contributing editor to American Demographics magazine. Dr. Robinson was an American Statistical Association/National Science Foundation fellow at the Bureau of Labor Statistics in 1992-93, a Fulbright scholar at Moscow State University and Soviet Academy of Sciences in 1990, a Research Consultant at BBC News in 1978 and Research Coordinator for the U.S. Surgeon General's Program on Television and Human Behavior in 1970. He received the 1987 Fordham University McGannon Award for Social and Ethical Relevance in Communication Policy Research for his research on improving public understanding of the news. His areas of specialization include social science methodology, attitude and behavior measurement, social change, and the impact of mass communication and other home technology. Additionally, he is an Editor of the Encyclopedia of Food Science, Food Technology & Nutrition.

This is a good reference manual for a multi-user facility faced with a wide variety of biological applications. --CYTOMETRY The second edition of Flow Cytometry provides a comprehensive and detailed foundation in the application of this diverse and rapidly expanding technology. The variety and scope of topics covered in this two-volume set are too large to cover in detail. The second edition of Flow Cytometry provides the investigator with a concise compilation of new and updated applications and procedures, updated references and a directory of the principal contributors to the field. The additions and improvements to the second edition are evidence of the impact this technology will continue to have on biological and medical sciences for years to come. --AMERICAN SCIENTIST Flow Cytometry includes an impressive array of methods applicable to chromosome analysis, plant biology, marine biology, fluorescence, in situ hybridization, and others. It succeeds in providing the reader with good insight into the power ofthe technology throughout biology. --KENNETH A. AULT, Maine Cytometry Research Institute, Maine Medical Center, in CANCER CELLS Every chapter has a clear introduction to the background of the method under discussion comprehensible to the inexperienced reader. Applications are very complete. --B. Lambrecht-Ghent in CELL BIOLOGY INTERNATIONAL
