Branch of histochemistry associated with the localization of cellular components by specific staining methods, as for example the localization of acid phosphatases by the Gomori method. Immunocytochemistry involves the use of labelled antibodies as part of the staining procedure.
Cytochemistry is the biochemistry of cells, especially that of the macromolecules responsible for cell structure and function. The term is also used to describe a process of identification of the biochemical content of cells.
