Part of the “Methods Express” series, Cell Imaging covers key techniques that can be used in laboratories with access to cell imaging equipment. Although the 350-page book focuses on live-cell imaging and light microscopy applications, many of the methods are relevant to imaging fixed specimens as well. Suitable for experienced researchers as well as for newcomers to the field, the resource includes a chapter on selecting the appropriate method for imaging requirements. Other sections cover areas such as transmitted light imaging, image quantification and analysis, high-content and high-throughput screening, correlative microscopy using Tokuyasu cryosections, and spectral imaging techniques for fluorescence microscopy. An index is provided. David Stephens, ed.; Scion Publishing Ltd., Bloxham, UK, 2005; $125, hardbound; $75, paperback.
