Example of expanded functional sampling: A rare event (galectin-1 binding large cancer cell) within a large cell anaplastic lung carcinoma displays a regular distance to its nearest neighbouring cells and a random distribution within the whole slide. In combination with biochemical data the result supports the idea that these cells might posses a "catalyst" function for progression of the total cancer cell population.
