I wish to broaden the the small but constant thread of immunologists
looking for good texts.
I am a researcher using basic immunochemical techniques in the lab. Though
I refer consantly to my old theoretical text books form my degree course, I
would really like a comprehensive text that deals exclusively with
laboratory techniques, including trouble shooting guides for ELISAs, dot
blots,Western blotting, raising and purifying antibodies etc. A text in
the spirit of the molecular biologists bible of Maniatis would be ideal.
"Antibodies", (I forget the author) has suited my needs till now, but I
would really like some alternative texts to give my understanding of the
problems unique to immunologists some real depth. It is a trouble shooting
guide that I really want but it also it seems a little short sighted to
rely on one text for everything.
I have gone through some library references looking for alternatives and
have come up with the following. If anyone on the net has used any of
these and is feeling altruistic, I would appreciate reccomendations or
condemnations so I don't waste my money.
