There are different methods to diversify the pool of samples in case of a positive result: For example, all samples could be reexamined individually (2-level pooling). It would also be possible to split the pool and test both halves. If the result is positive, the samples would be divided and tested again (binary splitting). Janin Heuer/TU Braunschweig
