From: Sampling variability between two mid-turbinate swabs of the same patient has implications for influenza viral load monitoring

Figure 3

Correction of the influenza A viral load for amount of human cells in the swabs. A: Process flow. B: Comparison of the influenza A viral load of the swabs from both nostrils before and after correction for human cell content (n=100). Values < LLOQ are omitted. The Swab A and B InfA viral load (corrected for human cellular DNA) were classified into 4 groups delimited by the first, second and third quartile and the relative frequency for each group were tabulated. (VL=viral load).
