The laboratories were asked to provide only isolates considered significant by their usual criteria.
At the same time, the laboratories were asked to provide results of the bacterial identification and antimicrobial sensitivity tests they had performed on the isolates.
Details of test methods used and number of urine samples received per head of community population were also requested.
Isolates were subcultured on to nutrient agar slopes and sent to the microbiology department of St Mary's Hospital London, UK and stored for batched testing.
