    J Clin Virol 61:311-2. 2014
    ..Human DNA testing confirmed that all samples were from this patient, excluding a sample mix-up. Laboratory investigations revealed a likely splash-over contamination event. ..

    PLoS ONE 8:e79252. 2013
    ..Potential data interpretation miscalls can therefore be avoided by careful exclusion of such D151 mutants after further sequence analysis. ..

    Chun K Lee
    National University Hospital, Singapore
    Emerg Infect Dis 17:287-91. 2011
    ..Neither pandemic nor seasonal influenza viral loads correlated with clinical severity of illness. No correlation was found between viral loads and concurrent illness...

    Mas Suhaila
    Department of Paediatrics, National University of Singapore, Singapore

    Michelle N D Balm
    Division of Microbiology, Department of Laboratory Medicine, National University Hospital, Singapore
    J Med Virol 84:1501-5. 2012
    ..Of the 88 samples tested, none were positive for ZIKV RNA, however, the vast majority of these were from patients admitted to hospital and further study may be warranted in community-based environments...
  8. doi request reprint Calibration of qualitative HBsAg assay results for quantitative HBsAg monitoring
    Hans Gunning
    Alberta Provincial Laboratory for Public Health, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
    J Clin Virol 61:305-8. 2014
    ..Based on these results with the Abbott Architect qualitative and quantitative HBsAg assays, it seems feasible to convert qualitative to quantitative HBsAg values for this purpose. ..

    Julian W Tang
    Alberta Provincial Laboratory for Public Health, University of Alberta Hospital, Edmonton, Canada Department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada
    Rev Med Virol 24:15-34. 2014
    ..A few used the autoregressive integrated moving average approach, which may be more realistic for an infectious agent as the total number of cases usually evolves in a time-dependent manner during a typical seasonal epidemic...

    Julian W Tang
    Department of Laboratory Medicine, National University Hospital, Singapore, Singapore
