The SURF Technique : Selective Genetic Analysis of Microscopic Tissue Heterogeneity.


Selective ultraviolet radiation fractionation (SURF) is a simple technique for the isolation of histologically defined microscopic tissue regions (1,2). Very small numbers (100-400) of cells can be rapidly isolated with relatively crude equipment. The isolated cells can be analyzed genetically by PCR, thereby allowing a direct comparison between microscopic… (More)
