[BioC] PCA plots and identifying outliers

I'm using affycoretools() to generate some pca plots. I found that I have some outliers. I was wondering, how do I find out which particular sample (.CEL file) was the outlier?

 I know which group it is from, but not the identity.

I've plotted pca plots with just using the plot() function as well, but I still do not know how to identify the particular sample that is the outlier.

Any ideas for both affycoretools() or the general plot() function will be appreciated!

No error, just question about how find out further details.
