Table 3 EpCAM positive cells in RT-PCR positive and RT-PCR negative samples

From: Analysis of EpCAM positive cells isolated from sentinel lymph nodes of breast cancer patients identifies subpopulations of cells with distinct transcription profiles

RT-PCR positive samples RT-PCR negative samples
Lowest # of IMS+ cells Highest # of IMS+ cells Mean # IMS+/sample Lowest # of IMS+ cells Highest # IMS+ cells Mean # IMS+/sample

  1. The number of cells positive by immunomagnetic selection (IMS) in one-tenth of the SLN sample is shown in comparison to the final RT-PCR result.
