Histological Preparations: Common Problems and Their Solutions
Author: Richard W. Brown and HQIP
The "how to" guide to good slide preparation, Histologic Preparations: Common Problems and Their Solutions, was developed by the Histotechnology Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) in conjunction with the National Society for Histotechnology (NSH). Building on data and images from the NSH/CAP histology quality assurance program, HistoQIP, the book presents photographic examples of well-prepared slides followed by numerous examples of associated problems and their solutions. Histologic Preparations is a reference text as well as a teaching tool. Written for pathologists, pathology residents, histotechnologists, and histotechnic ians as well as histology students, this thorough book contains troubleshooting techniques for the most common artifacts and problems incurred in routine histologic preparations. Some of the topics covered are fixation and processing; microtomy; frozen sections; H&E and Gram stains; mycobacteria, H pylori, spirochetes, and fungi; and trichrome, reticulin, elastin, basement membrane, mucin, amyloid, and immunohistochemical stains.

CLSI Guideline: Quality Assurance for Design Control and Implementation of IHC Assays
This book provides guidelines for the development of validated diagnostic, prognostic, and predictive
immunohistochemical assays, and is a revision of the previous CLSI document MM04.
The focus of this guideline is the application of immunohistochemistry (IHC) and immunocytochemistry
(ICC) for the study of human tumor specimens. The guideline presents information on the total
product life cycle of the discovery, design, development, verification, and analytical and clinical validation of IHC and ICC reagents, kits, and systems, while emphasizing that accurate and reliable IHC and ICC results require attention to the total test.
This guideline focuses on validation of IHC assays on formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded pathology material. Additionally, this document contains recommendations on design and statistical analysis of experiments for estimating the precision of IHC assay results. This book is available through the NSH Marketplace .

Histology: An Identification Manual
Author: Robert Tallitsch PhD
This text comes with the Student Content online at no extra charge. This user-friendly text takes you effortlessly through the step-by-step process you need to accurately distinguish the various components of each and every tissue, organ and system under consideration.
Each chapter contains a “commonly misdiagnosed” section to help you avoid the usual pitfalls in identification, and a “logic tree” maps out the questions you should be asking yourself as you go through the identification process. This book is available through the NSH Marketplace.
Theory and Practice of Histotechnology
Authors: Dezna C. Sheehan, Barbara B. Hrapchak
An excellent book for someone who is starting to learn about histology. It includes basic information that is helpfuland may be used as a guideline for personal lab work. “Sheehan" has been used for decades as THE reference for histotechnologists working in various histology laboratories and as the preferred study guide for the ASCP Board of Certification Exams.
Sheehan's strength is in the vast range of methods covered in the areas of fixation and processing of tissue, special stains and histochemistry. These methods are still valid after all these years because basic tissue work has not changed all that much. Add to this the clear and logical presentation of the material that makes it possible for researchers in histology and clinical technologists to glean from Sheehan those precious tidbits that make life easier in the histology laboratory and we see why this book is still so popular among working histotechnologists.
