At least one lab in Holland performs pneumococcal antigen tests in urine (I don't
know what technique is used). We get maybe two requests per year and send them
there. There seem to be good indications for these tests, but I have never bothered
I also have no idea which hospital departments ask these tests. Wouldn't be
surprised if it were reumatology. Bacteriology there is always a bit complicated.
