  • QUANTITATION AND ESTIMATION OF LYMPHOCYTE SUBSETS IN TISSUE-SECTIONS - COMPARISON WITH FLOW-CYTOMETRY AMERICAN JOURNAL OF CLINICAL PATHOLOGY Garcia, C. F., Weiss, L. M., Lowder, J., KOMOROSKE, C., Link, M. P., Levy, R., Warnke, R. A. 1987; 87 (4): 470-477

    Abstract:

    A quantitation method for lymphocyte subsets in immunoperoxidase-stained frozen tissue sections was compared with flow cytometry in 23 cases of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Close correlations were obtained, demonstrating the accuracy of the technic. Weak intensity of fluorescence and fragility of the tumor cells during the fluorescence-activated cell sorter (FACS) analyses were the most likely explanations for a number of the discrepancies observed. The tissue quantitation method was precise, particularly at low values, where it was better than the FACS. A simpler and faster estimation method employing categories within 10 percentage units was also tested in this study; this method correlated as well with the FACS as the quantitation method and gave the best interobserver correlations.
