Abstract

The long duration since Ct diagnostics have been performed and laboratories have been accredited can be seen as an indication of the high diagnostic quality of German laboratories. Additionally, laboratories mostly serviced doctors and patients from a large region and are not representative for people living in the area where the lab is located. This has to be considered when sampling representative labs for CT sentinel surveillance and further epidemiological studies.
