  • a Serotype result for pneumococcal culture of blood or a bronchoalveolar lavage specimen from the same patient as the tested urine sample.

  • b For urine samples spiked with antigen, the concentration (in nanograms per milliliter) at which the serotype was detected is given in parentheses.

  • c Taking into account any potential cross-reactions as listed in Table 3.

  • d Sample with a positive CWP assay result but negative for all other assay serotypes.
