Table 2 Summary of peak detection in the different fractions

From: Interest of major serum protein removal for Surface-Enhanced Laser Desorption/Ionization – Time Of Flight (SELDI-TOF) proteomic blood profiling

  Detected peaks Pearson Factor Between each replicate Number of unique peaks
Serum 32 ± 1 0.90 0
Bound compartment 29 ± 1 0.97 3
Unbound compartment 41 ± 0 0.95 24
  1. Legend: Fractionation of serum samples (n = 4) by IgY12 spin columns and SELDI-TOF analysis. Peaks were detected using ProteinChip Software (Ciphergen Biosystems) between 3,000 to 15,000 m/z with a ratio signal/noise of 3. Pearson factor is calculated between replicates of each fraction. Note: unique peaks are those not present in any of the two other fractions.
