  1. 1uropathogenic Escherichia coli; 2this row includes pathogens whose genomes are similar to Klebsiella, Citrobacter (1 ID for C. koseri), and Enterobacter (1 ID for E. cloacae and 1 ID for E. aerogenes); 3in 115 of 120 analyses, proteomic data were of sufficient quality for ID assessments; 4UA nitrite: nitrite analysis with a dipstick test; 5data excluded positive tests in cases where a uropathogen was also identified; 6numbers for Proteomic IDs in denominator; 7urine culture (UC) data were available for 55 of the 120 urine samples; commensal urogenital organisms (CUG) were identified as a group in UC tests and included Lactobacillus and G. vaginalis; 8agreement of proteomic and UC data pertains to percentage of matching data provided that UC data were available (Proteomic IDs in denominator).
