Gene expression profiling of FFPE breast cancer samples [Affymetrix platform]

Organism Icon Homo sapiens
Sample Icon 12 Downloadable Samples
Technology Badge Icon Affymetrix Human Genome U133 Plus 2.0 Array (hgu133plus2)

Submitter Supplied Information

The use of Affymetrix U133 2.0 Plus chips on FFPE samples when coupled with a qPCR-based sample pre-assessment step, yielded satisfactory results from the point of view of biological reliability. When compared with the Illumina DASL WG platform, specifically designed for degraded RNA, the data generated with the Affymetrix platform showed a wider interquartile range (IQR 1.32 vs 0.57, p<2.2x10-16) suggesting a superior discriminatory power within samples as indicated by the good agreement with the immunohistiochemically derived ER status.
