Competing Interests

None of the authors have any relationships or support that might be perceived as constituting a conflict of interest, except that Quidel Corporation covered the costs of airfare and hotel for AG at one conference in February 2009 and provided the rapid tests. This does not alter the authors' adherence to all of the PLoS ONE policies on sharing data and materials.
