This unique text covers, in great depth, both light and electron microscopy, as well as other structure and imaging techniques like x-ray crystallography and atomic force microscopy. Written in a user-friendly style and covering a broad range of topics, Bioimaging describes the state-of-the-art technologies that have powered the field to the forefront of cellular and molecular biological research.
Cheville: Ultrastructural Pathology
By Norman Cheville
2009 (2nd ed), 1000 pages, 172 illus, $249 list
This atlas of functional ultrastructure provides a detailed insight into the complex structure and organization of cells and tissues. Further, highlights of specific cellular and tissue functions, as well as the dynamics of diverse intracellular processes are provided. Highly informative and high-quality electron micrographs are complemented by explanatory texts, selected references and schemes. Emphasis is placed on an integrated view of structure and function to illustrate the concept that subcellular organelles provide the structural foundation for fundamental processes of living organisms. The first part of the atlas covers the cellular organelles, and illustrates their characteristic changes due to experimental manipulations or occurring under pathological conditions. The second part then illustrates the principles of tissue organization and function, including selected examples ranging from diverse epithelia and mesenchymal cells to muscle and sensory cells, cells of the nervous system and of the peripheral blood. In addition to their normal appearance, typical fine structural changes resulting from experimental induction or pathological situations complete this part of the atlas.
Egerton: Physical Principles of Electron Microscopy: An Introduction to TEM, SEM, and AEM
By R.F. Egerton
2010, 214 pages, $90 list
Scanning and stationary-beam electron microscopes are indispensable tools for both research and routine evaluation in materials science, the semiconductor industry, nanotechnology and the biological, forensic, and medical sciences. This book introduces current theory and practice of electron microscopy, primarily for undergraduates who need to understand how the principles of physics apply in an area of technology that has contributed greatly to our understanding of life processes and "inner space." Physical Principles of Electron Microscopy will appeal to technologists who use electron microscopes and to graduate students, university teachers and researchers who need a concise reference on the basic principles of microscopy.
Eyden: The Ultrastructure of Human Tumours: Applications in Diagnosis and Research
By Bryan Eyden, S. Sankar Banerjee, Yongxin Ru, Pawel Liberski
2013 (1st ed), 680 pages, 757 illus, $219 list
The Ultrastructure of Human Tumours: Applications in Diagnosis and Research describes the core features as seen by transmission electron microscopy, defining the different types of cellular differentiation in tumours; this is relevant for tumour nomenclature and diagnosis, which, in turn, are important for tumour pathologists in their collaboration with oncologists for the treatment of cancer patients. The book is divided into 8 chapters. Following an introduction on technique and procedure, there are chapters on epithelial tumours, melanocytic lesions, soft-tissue and related tumours, lymphoma and leukaemia, CNS neoplasms and neuroendocrine and neuronal tumours. Each chapter includes an introductory text that puts the ultrastructural features in the context of classical pathology.
Fultz: Transmission Electron Microscopy and Diffractometry of Materials
By Brent Fultz
2009 (3rd ed), 778 pages, $129 list
This hugely successful and highly acclaimed text is designed to meet the needs of materials scientists at all levels. In this third edition readers get a fully updated and revised text, too. Fultz and Howe explain concepts of transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and x-ray diffractometry (XRD) that are important for the characterization of materials. The edition has been updated to cover important technical developments, including the remarkable recent improvement in resolution of the TEM, and all chapters have been updated and revised for clarity. A new chapter on high resolution STEM methods has been added. Each chapter includes a set of problems to illustrate principles, and the extensive Appendix includes laboratory exercises.
Pavelka: Functional Ultrastructure: Atlas of Tissue Biology and Pathology
By Margit Pavelka
2010 (2nd ed), 383 pages, $315 list
Ultrastructural Pathology, Second Edition is a comprehensive reference on electron microscopy of pathologic tissue in animals and humans. The text bridges the gap between what is seen in the electron microscope at the cellular level with what the pathologist encounters in the postmortem room. It explains and integrates all aspects of ultrastructural pathology in human and animal tissue occurring from natural and experimental disease. This new edition has been improved with a more comparative focus and expanded coverage on infectious diseases and tumors.
Pavelka: Functional Ultrastructure: Atlas of Tissue Biology and Pathology
By Margit Pavelka and Jürgen Roth
2015, 402 pages, $209 list
This atlas provides a detailed insight into the complex structure and organization of cells and tissues, and highlights their specific functions as well as the dynamics of diverse intracellular processes. Highly informative electron micrographs are complemented by explanatory texts, selected references and schemes. The concept that subcellular organelles provide the structural foundation for fundamental processes of living organisms is emphasized. The first part covers the cellular organelles and changes caused by experiments or occurring under pathological conditions. The second part employs selected examples to illustrate the principles of functional tissue organization and typical changes resulting from experimental induction or pathological situations. The third edition of the atlas, revised and extended by 23 plates, thus provides an invaluable resource for scientists and students of medicine and biological sciences, particularly of histology, cell and molecular biology. Moreover, it will serve as a handy reference guide for diagnostic and research electron microscopy laboratories in clinical, industrial, and academic settings.
Schatten: Scanning Electron Microscopy for the Life Sciences
By Heide Schatten
2013 (1st ed), 274 pages, $120 list
Recent developments in scanning electron microscopy (SEM) have resulted in a wealth of new applications for cell and molecular biology, as well as related biological disciplines. It is now possible to analyze macromolecular complexes within their three-dimensional cellular microenvironment in near native states at high resolution, and to identify specific molecules and their structural and molecular interactions. New approaches include cryo-SEM applications and environmental SEM (ESEM), staining techniques and processing applications combining embedding and resin-extraction for imaging with high resolution SEM, and advances in immuno-labeling. New developments include helium ion microscopy, automated block-face imaging combined with serial sectioning inside an SEM chamber, and Focused Ion Beam Milling (FIB) combined with block-face SEM. With chapters written by experts, this guide gives an overview of SEM and sample processing for SEM, and highlights several advances in cell and molecular biology that greatly benefited from using conventional, cryo, immuno, and high-resolution SEM.
