Laser microdissection for microsatellite analysis in colon and breast cancer.

Abstract

Microsatellite analysis is a frequently used method for detection of chromosomal deletions by loss of heterozygosity studies and for detection of microsatellite instability. For reliable microsatellite analyses, a tumor cell content of at least 80% is required. Therefore, laser microdissection is an important prerequisite for those studies, allowing the… (More)
