Dendrogram representation of PBMCs. The dendrogram constructed by Ouedraogo et al. [17] was implemented with reference spectra of PBMCs from two healthy donors and two septic patients. The Biotyper (Bruker Daltonics) software was used to create an averaged spectrum for each patient, corresponding to at least 10 individual spectra. The averaged spectra were added to the database using the Biotyper software and the dendrogram creation method. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs); polymorphonuclear cells (PMNs); dendritic cells (DCs); monocyte-derived macrophages (MDMs); bone marrow-derived macrophages (BMDMs); red blood cells (RBCs)
