  1. A, agreement; B, one (or more) false positive; C, one (or more) false negative; blank: insufficient amount of sample to undertake SOLiD sequencing. In all cases, bacteria inferred to be present, but at a concentration below the minimum detection limit of the molecular probe technology, have been ignored. Only those bacteria for which there were molecular probes were considered
