Intralaboratory reproducibility showing proportion (%) of replicate assays differing by >2-fold (A, B) and >4-fold (C, D) by horse hemagglutination-inhibition and neutralization assays for each participating laboratory for all serum samples (A, C) and postvaccination serum samples (B, D). Laboratory 11 did not return hemagglutinin-inhibition result.
