  1. *Laboratories were identified by the number of specimens submitted. To safeguard anonymity the laboratories in Table 1 have no abbreviation, and the sequence of the laboratories in Tables 1 and 2 has been changed. Despite the loss of relevant information, this approach was necessary since non-anonymity might have discouraged laboratories from participating.
