  Purpose

The primary objective of this trial is to compare GeneSearch™ Breast Lymph Node (BLN) Test Kit to permanent pathological section, so as to evaluate the clinical sensitivity and specificity of GeneSearch™ Breast Lymph Node (BLN) Test Kit in detecting axillary sentinel lymph node metastases in breast cancer patients.

The secondary objective of this trial is to evaluate the positive predictive value and negative predictive value of GeneSearch™ Breast Lymph Node (BLN) Test Kit when used in the detection of axillary sentinel lymph node metastases in breast cancer patients.

Arms Assigned Interventions
No Intervention: Routine pathologic method
Half of each sentinal lymph node will have rountine pathologic examination as normal practice.
Experimental: GeneSearch BLN Assay
Half of each sentinal lymph node will have GeneSearch BLN testing.
Procedure: GeneSearch™ Breast Lymph Node (BLN) Assay

Each of the sentinal lymph node will be divided in half according to cutting scheme.

Half of the sentinal lymph node will be tested using rountine pathological method as normal practice, half of the node will have GeneSearch BLN testing.
