The "how to" guide to good slide preparation, Histologic Preparations: Common Problems and Their Solutions, was developed
by the Histotechnology Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) in conjunction with the National Society
for Histotechnology (NSH). Building on data and images from the NSH/CAP histology quality assurance program, HistoQIP,
the book presents photographic examples of well-prepared slides followed by numerous examples of associated problems and their solutions.
Histologic Preparations is a reference text as well as a teaching tool. Written for pathologists, pathology residents,
histotechnologists, and histotechnicians as well as histology students, this thorough book contains troubleshooting
techniques for the most common artifacts and problems incurred in routine histologic preparations.
Some of the topics covered are fixation and processing; microtomy; frozen sections; H&E and Gram stains; mycobacteria,
H pylori, spirochetes, and fungi; and trichrome, reticulin, elastin, basement membrane, mucin, amyloid, and immunohistochemical stains.
This timely, practical, and straightforward book will be turned to repeatedly as a reliable reference in the laboratory.
