Types of Glands

endocrine glands glands that secrete their product directly onto a surface rather than through a duct
exocrine glands secrete their products via a duct, the glands in this group can be divided into three groups:
apocrine glands a portion of the secreting cell's body is lost during secretion. Apocrine gland is often used to refer to the apocrine sweat glands
holocrine glands the entire cell disintegrates to secrete its substances (e.g., sebaceous glands)
merocrine glands cells secrete their substances by exocytosis (e.g., mucous and serous glands). Also called "eccrine."
serous glands secrete a watery, often protein-rich product
mucous glands secrete a viscous product, rich in carbohydrates (e.g., glycoproteins)
sebacious glands secrete a lipid product
