Gold and Silver Staining Techniques in Molecular Morphology

Edited By Gerhard W. Hacker, Jiang Gu Copyright 2002

    Immunogold silver staining is one of the most sensitive techniques available for visualizing the location of antibodies and nucleotide probes that have been bounded to specific antigens or to nucleotide sequences. As gold and silver staining continues to advance research in molecular morphology, this book presents the information you need to know a
