  • a For each serotype, the results for the calibration serum samples identified as indeterminable, intralaboratory outliers, and interlaboratory outliers are indicated. Indeterminable results are defined as failing to meet the testing laboratory's assay system suitability criteria, intralaboratory outliers are defined as an OI within a laboratory differing by more than 4-fold from the corresponding laboratory's median OI, and interlaboratory outliers are defined as a laboratory's geometric mean OI differing by more than 4-fold from the corresponding consensus OI. Pn, pneumococcal serotype.
