    "This is a great contribution to the field of pathology. The book will be very useful for anyone who wants to know immunohistochemistry and theranostics in detail."-Tejashree Karnick, MBBS(University of Kansas Medical Center) Doody Review: 5 stars

    "The second chapter is an excellent overview of common molecular techniques and a ‘must read’ for anyone, but especially those revising for their FRCPath exams or contemplating taking on a research project this book will expand the reader’s understanding of both immunohistochemistry and molecular diagnostic and theranostic applications.

    It also acts as an up-to-date bench-top reference tool. It is an easy-to-read, well presented text that I would recommend as a ‘must have’ for every pathology department".
