German term or phrase: Entnahmeartefakten
"Condyloma acuminata mit mittelschwerer, koilozytärer Dysplasie (VIN II), von sekundaren Entnahmeartefakten überlagert (Introitus).

This is from the Histology section of an Op Report. The subject is contained in the above. 'Entnahmeartefakten' looks to me like 'artefacts for removal' but is that the right idea? Is 'artefacts' used in a medical context?

Sampling artifacts
Explanation:
Sampling artifacts of acidity and ionic species in PM2.5.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&d...

This finding limits the use of single biopsy based markers to predict biological behavior, and has significant impact on the ability of distinguishing longitudinal changes in tissue composition from sampling artifacts.

You may also find many \"sampling artefacts\" with a web search, but the right English term is artifact:

artifact
1. Anything artificially produced. 2. In histology and radiography any structure or feature produced by the technique used and not occurring naturally. 3. In electronics, the appearance of a spurious signal not consistent with results expected from the signal being studied. For example, an electrocardiogram may contain artifacts produced by a defective machine, electrical interference, patient movement, or loose electrodes.
