Medical - Medical: Pharmaceuticals / Medical Abbreviation
German term or phrase: TE
Verwendete Dosis [ ] 2 TE (Herstellerangaben beachten)

This is from a form from a German military medical services unit.

The only thing I can think of is 'Tageinheit". Could it be anything else?

From the asker's note we know that that her document is about tests for hepatitis, measles, mumps, rubella etc. which are all infectious diseases, so is tuberculosis. I have never seen or heard about any test carried out using a "Tagesdosis" (daily dose). Hence, I still think that "Tuberkulineinheit" is more likely. If all else fails ATA (ask the author).

re. "ATA" - On the whole, my personal experience is very good, but it is also true that there are some exceptions.

Notes to answerer
Asker: The form shows reults of serum tests for Hepatitus, measles, mumps rubella etc.

Asker: ATA is the safest option but another query came back with the comment "we don't answer technical queries".
