Media reviews
...investigators with different levels of expertise will find smething of interest in many of the topics covered.. -ANALYTICAL BIOCHEMISTRY This is a useful and well written book... This volume is more complete than many others since it features a much broader coverage of important information and is more current than most others. It would be a very useful reference in any life science library or a laboratory that is using or plans to use animal cell culture. -DOODY'S
