Review Text

From the reviews:

"The present volume 'Stem Cell Assays' ... include very detailed experimental sections, which are essentially raw lab protocols. ... All protocols are explained in full detail ... and should be very useful for researchers novel to this field. In addition, for more experienced scientists it may be very useful to compare their own protocols with those provided in this volume ... . this book will be of great value for experimental scientists that wish to introduce novel technology into their labs."
