From the reviews of the second edition:

"The book contains detailed instructions and extensive illustrations with many practical examples on the technique permitting even investigators not familiar with the technique to learn all the basic concepts and practical experimental details ... and apply ELISA methodology successfully in basic and clinical research. ... The book is written mainly for molecular and cellular biologists, biochemists, pharmaceutical scientists, immunologists, pathologists, laboratory medicine researchers, and all researchers using biochemical assays. ... This volume ... is an excellent manual for the understanding and development of the ELISA." (Ruben Mestril, Doody's Review Service, May, 2009)

"It is the practical ELISA bible, a definitive manual covering theoretical aspects, commercial reagents, troubleshooting, instrumentation, enzyme-linked conjugates and microwell plates. ... Throughout this book excellent use is made of flow diagrams, graphs and tables to aid the reader. ... The ELISA Guidebook is a must for institutional libraries, departments of immunology, hospital diagnostic laboratories, research laboratories using ELISA-based assays and companies developing ELISA immunodiagnostic kits. The book is well worth its price." (Cyril J. Smyth, Microbiology Today, November, 2009)

"The 2nd Edition of The ELISA Guidebook is essentially the author's tribute to the ELISA technology that has revolutionised all laboratories ... . This edition well lives up to its name ... . Overall, I rate this book as an extremely valuable resource ... to the daily ELISA user. I recommend this book to all Biomedical Scientists, Clinical Scientists and trainees in Laboratory Medicine and that one copy should be available in every laboratory that makes extensive use of ELISA." (Sujoy Khan, Immunology News, November, 2009) "The book describes the methods involved in heterogeneous enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA) that provide ideal systems for dealing with a wide range of studies in many biological areas. ... This method is widely using in various scientific and industrial areas ... . provides a premier practical guide to the understanding and application of ELISA. Each method is described in great detail, and the whole book is an excellent manual for many researchers in biochemistry, molecular biology, immunochemistry, biotechnology, and medicine." (G. Ya. Wiederschain, Biochemistry, Vol. 9, 2009)
