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 The Second Edition of this valuable book, nearly twice the size of the first, testifies to the continuing extraordinary growth of new biologic applications for flow cytometry. This Methods book fills the need for a compendium of those techniques, presented in concise, straightforward language. It is a highly readable compendium of biologic techniques for flow cytometry that should be in every laboratory... --Myron R. Melamed in CYTOMETRY @from:Reviews of the First Edition: This is a good reference manual for a multi-user facility faced with a wide variety of biological applications. --CYTOMETRY 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 of the technology throughout biology. --KENNETH A. AULT, Maine Cytometry Research Institute, Maine Medical Center, in CANCER CELLS The editors, who are themselves major contributors, have assembled a prodigious list of 140 contributors. Virtually all who have developed or refined the techniques of flow cytometry over the last decade or more have been recruited to describe the optimum methodologies. It is a highly readable compendium of biological techniques for flow cytometry that should be in every laboratory, and priced at a bargain. --CANCER RESEARCH INSTITUTE Every chapter has a clear introduction to the background of the method under discussion comprehensible to the inexperienced reader. Applications are very complete... --CELL BIOLOGY INTERNATIONAL
