Internal reviewers: Pseudo165 Pseudo165, Pseudo220 Pseudo220, Pseudo263 Pseudo263, Pseudo296 Pseudo296, Pseudo88 Pseudo88

Results from EFF and SAF domain answer this question perfectly. As there are only minor differences between the two tests and the consequences are identical common professional practice will be the same for both tests.

The comparison between the two tests show no special challenges or risks for patients.
