1. Culture methods selected in a study influence that calculated ADT sensitivity. 2. Studies are likely to report higher ADT sensitivities when cultures are performed in physician offices. 3. When culture methods result in identification of very small numbers of GABHS, the calculated sensitivity of an ADT will be lower than that calculated when a less rigorous culture method is used because ADTs are likely to fail to detect low numbers of GABHS.
