Fig. 3

Representative images of cancer-associated macrophage-like cells (CAMLs) detected in the matched renal cell carcinoma samples (RCC patient 1) with or without cryopreservation. Whole blood samples were drawn at three time points and subjected to Ficoll separation. The matched peripheral blood mononuclear cell samples were processed immediately without cryopreservation (fresh) or processed after cryopreservation for 7 days (frozen). The filter-captured cells were stained with CK8, 18, 19/FITC (green), vimentin/EF615 (red), and CD45/Cyanine5 (magenta). Three CAMLs, representing different intensities, are presented for the fresh and frozen samples, respectively. a Representative images of typical CAMLs detected in the fresh samples. b Representative images of typical CAMLs detected in the frozen samples
