Description

This book applies modern molecular diagnostic techniques to the analysis of single cells, small numbers of cells, or cell extracts. Emphasis is placed on non-invasive analysis of single cell metabolites and the direct analysis of RNA and DNA from single cells, with a focus on polymerase chain reaction and fluorescence in situ hybridization. In particular, this handbook is essential for practitioners providing care for couples seeking treatment for infertility.show more

Review quote

From the reviews: "Single cell diagnostics has become an increasingly important field for both clinicians and researchers who are involved in infertility treatment. ... For researchers this book provides not only detailed state of the art protocols for single cell diagnostics, but also valuable notes on troubleshooting and pitfalls. For clinicians in the field of infertility this nice overview gives an insight into single cell diagnostics and its scientific background. ... This book can be warmly recommended to clinicians and researchers caring for patients with fertility problems." (G. Haidl and J. P. Allam, Andrologia, Vol. 40 (1), 2008) "This book details innovative methods for analyzing gene expression, chromosome organization, and proteins in single cells and cell extracts. ... The book is written for basic science and clinical researchers, particularly those providing care to couples seeking advice regarding infertility and inherited genetic disorders. ... The chapters are written by experts and the book is carefully edited. ... The laboratory protocols and tips will be valued by laboratory scientists interested in forensic medicine, reproductive medicine, and developmental genetics." (Bruce A. Fenderson, Doody's Review Service, October, 2007)show more
