  1. Column headings: V DC: Vaginal sample, cultured directly on Columbia Agar, V LG: after Lim broth enrichment culture, plated onto Granada agar, V LC: after Lim broth enrichment culture, plated onto Columbia agar; R DC: Rectal sample, idem as for vaginal samples.
  2. -: No GBS isolated.
  3. a: Genotype: +: strain present, but not genotyped, A, B, C, D: genotypes numbered per individual.
  4. b: Serotype: serotype number as determined by the Essum AB kit (Umea, Sweden). The following serotypes can be detected by this kit: Ia, Ib, II, III, IV and V. NT: nontypeable.
