Provides questions and descriptive answers on the theory and techniques of decalcification. Information also covers processing methods, chemicals and quality control.
EMBEDDING
Self Assessment #3: EMBEDDING
Covers steps from the completion of processing until the start of staining. Includes questions and answers on embedding media, tissue orientation, microtomes, knives, knife sharpeners, frozen sectioning, microtomy and troubleshooting.
ROUTINE STAINING
Self Assessment #4: ROUTINE STAINING
Covers routine staining considerations and pertinent facts about the chemistry of staining, in question and descriptive answer format.
IMMUNOHISTOCHEMISTRY, ENZYME HISTOCHEMISTRY, FLOW CYTOMETRY, IN-SITU HYBRIDIZATION AND ELECTRON MICROSCOPY
Self Assessment #5: IMMUNOHISTOCHEMISTRY, ENZYME HISTOCHEMISTRY, FLOW CYTOMETRY, IN-SITU HYBRIDIZATION AND ELECTRON MICROSCOPY
Developed for teaching as well as self-assessment purposes. Basic through advanced levels of immunology theory and immunologic staining are included along with an introduction to in-situ hybridization, flow cytometry and references for polymerase chain reaction techniques. Included as well, are basic, intermediate and advanced questions on electron microscopy.
MICROORGANISMS STAINING AND IDENTIFICATION
Self Assessment #6: MICROORGANISMS STAINING AND IDENTIFICATION
Developed for teaching as well as self-assessment purposes. Basic thru advanced levels of microorganisms, staining and identification. Theory, application and quality control of stains are components of these questions and descriptive answers.
CONNECTIVE TISSUE AND MUSCLE MORPHOLOGY AND STAINING
Self Assessment #7: CONNECTIVE TISSUE AND MUSCLE MORPHOLOGY AND STAINING
Developed for teaching as well as self-assessment purposes. Basic thru advance levels of connective tissue and muscle morphology and staining are included in question and descriptive answer format.
PIGMENTS, MINERALS AND ARTIFACTS STAINING AND IDENTIFICATION
Self Assessment #8: PIGMENTS, MINERALS AND ARTIFACTS STAINING AND IDENTIFICATION
An excellent teaching guide as it deals with an in-depth study of the morphology, preservation, staining and identification of pigments, minerals and artifacts in tissues. This book is divided into three levels of knowledge, and is comprehensive in many facets of the subjects, including theory and quality control applications.
NERVE TISSUE AND SPECIAL TISSUES AND CELLS STAINING AND IDENTIFICATION
Self Assessment #9: NERVE TISSUE AND SPECIAL TISSUES AND CELLS STAINING AND IDENTIFICATION
Contains questions for experienced and inexperienced histotechnicians. As with previous books, it is divided into two parts. The first part contains questions on staining and identification. The second part restates these questions, indicates the correct answer and expounds on subjects contained in the questions, as well as the rationale for the correct answer. Subjects comprising the questions and answers include theory, application and quality control of staining. The topics are divided into three parts, with each section containing questions of a higher level of difficulty.
CARBOHYDRATE STAINING AND IDENTIFICATION
Self Assessment #10: CARBOHYDRATE STAINING AND IDENTIFICATION
Booklet was developed for teaching as well as self-assessment. Included are basic, intermediate and advanced levels on carbohydrate staining and identification. Special emphasis is given to diagnostic application of special stains in various pathological conditions.
LABORATORY OPERATIONS
Self Assessment #11: LABORATORY OPERATIONS
Contains questions for experienced and inexperienced histotechnicians and histotechnologists on instrumentation, lab math, education, management and regulations. The book is divided into three levels of knowledge - basic, intermediate and advanced. It is one of the best sources of material for not only those preparing for the HT and HTL examinations, but also for supervisors and managers in histopathology.
GROSS DISSECTION AND DESCRIPTION
Self Assessment #12: GROSS DISSECTION AND DESCRIPTION
Provides the theory and practical application of various facets of gross dissection and description. The booklet includes basic, intermediate and advanced levels of instruction to assess your knowledge of gross dissection.
CYTOPREPARATORY TECHNIQUES
Self Assessment #13: CYTOPREPARATORY TECHNIQUES
Provides the theory and practical application of various facets of cytopreparatory techniques. Included are specimen collection and receipt, processing and staining, and troubleshooting and maintenance. The booklet is not divided into three areas of difficulty. Instead, it is divided into the various preparatory areas.
LABORATORY SAFETY
Self Assessment #14: LABORATORY SAFETY
Provides a comprehensive review of safety topics applicable to laboratory personnel. Included are Agencies, Organizations, Regulations, Precautions. Chemical hazards and biohazards as well as general safety precautions such as electrical, fire, first aid, shipping, ergonomics and radiation are included
ENZYME HISTOCHEMISTRY AND ELECTRON MICROSCOPY
Self Assessment #15: ENZYME HISTOCHEMISTRY AND ELECTRON MICROSCOPY
Provides theory and practices of Enzyme histochemistry and electron microscopy, including techniques commonly used in surgical pathology labs, criteria for determining fixation, and processing for paraffin embedding. Describes factors that influence fixation for Electron MIctoscopy. Visual images are included with some questions in this module.
