The role of histochemistry in increasing objectivity in histopathology
  1. A. G. E. Pearse


    The techniques of microscopic histochemistry, successfully applied to problems in histopathology, necessarily result in increased objectivity.

    Combined with procedures for quantification the increase may be such as to remove subjective judgment altogether.

    Extended to the ultrastructural level the quality of the information derived is greatly enhanced in terms of localization but there is usually no increase in objectivity.

    Of all branches of technology capable of conferring on histopathology an increase in objectivity, histochemistry must take first place.
