    Reviews & endorsements

    "This is an excellent book, dealing with many aspects of the application of fluorescence microscopic techniques in a variety of different fields. It is well illustrated with numerous chemical structures, tables, and photographs, and provides a thoroughly readable and informative text with many valuable references for Ph.D students, researchers, and pathologists." Q. Peng, Journal of Ultrastructural Pathology

    "...would make a solid addition to the reference collection of any laboratory using fluorescence microscopy." R.J.C. McLean, Canadian Society of Microbiologists

    "The chapters in this Vol. II are well written and contain a wealth of information....Overall, this book gives a good overview of the various aspects of fluorescence microscopy and would be an appropriate text to use as an introduction to this broad field." Myriam Belanger, CSM Newsletter
