An invaluable contribution to the work of researchers engaged in state of the art immunological research. --HERMAN WALDMANN "Ivan Lefkovits is one of the pioneers in Immunological Technology. That he has now put together a book on this subject is very exciting and should proves useful to many workers in the field." --CHARLES JANEWAY "With this crew, it will fly high." --GEORGES KOHLER "This volume is of exceptional value because it draws on the broad experience of the Basel Institute of Immunology... It will be used by immunologists at every level, from beginners to old hands, and will be cited as the definitive reference for many techniques." --AV MITCHISON "Edited by a master of immunological techniques, Dr. Ivan Lefkovits, this authoritative work fully meets its ambitious goals. The wealth of information provided in the Manual should help not only graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in immunology, but more experienced research workers and laboratory scientists as well." --SIR G.J.V. NOSSAL "I congratulate you on this novel endeavor in compiling cutting edge technology in immunological research. It represents a most timely effort, as a comprehensive up-to-date methods manual has not been available for many years. The list of contributors is certainly impressive. A must for all actively experimenting immunologists." --KLAUS EICHMANN "This manual has a comprehensive set of advanced immunological techniques and is particularly strong in cellular immunology. The price/page ratio will make the manual widely accessible to research laboratories." --TIM SPRINGER The Prepublication Reviews "Ivan Lefkovits is one of the pioneers in Immunological Technology. That he has now put together a book on this subject is very exciting and should prove useful to many workers in the field." --CHARLES JANEWAY "This manual consists of a four-volume set that draws on the expertise of more than 300 researchers. Despite the large number of authors, the style of presentation is surprisingly uniform, there is minimal repetition, and the illustrations are clear and effective... Overall, the manual is well produced, and it is an especially good source of methods in cellular Immunology. --Daniel Quinn, PhD, Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine, for DOODY'S PUBLISHING REVIEWS
