Cell Proliferation and Apoptosis provides a detailed practical guide to cell proliferation and apoptosis detection methods. A novel approach combining both these areas allows important comparisons to be made. Topics covered include all aspects of tissue handling from collection, storage, fixation and processing through to locating and quantifying cells in different stages of the cell cycle. This book is an essential and comprehensive practical guide to these important and expanding areas.
