About this book

In Vitro Toxicity Testing Protocols is a collection of proven, state-of-the-art methods that toxicologists can use in carrying out laboratory studies. The book's expert contributors offer a variety of efficient in vitro toxicology techniques that can be applied regularly in your lab, or can serve as the fundamental basis for the establishment of novel techniques in working laboratories. All the procedures are highly reliable. Also included are ex vivo techniques, whose development embraces the twin aims of reduction and refinement of the use of laboratory animals; the editors believe this is an important step toward the ethical treatment of laboratory animals. In keeping with the successful format of preceding volumes of the Methods in Molecular Biology series, concise, easy-to-follow, step-by-step protocols are provided for each technique, together with extensive notes that cover troubleshooting and offer special tips to ensure the successful completion of your experiments. excellent presentation of the recent advances made in in-vitro toxicology...authors place these advances in a meaningful perspective and present the material in easy to follow protocol...the authors succeeded in their efforts to fill the need for current knowledge on this subject.**** - Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal
