Table 1 The effects of temperature and time on real-time PCR detection of Plasmodium DNA

From: PCR detection of malaria parasites in desiccated Anopheles mosquitoes is uninhibited by storage time and temperature

Study Condition Partial Sum of Squares Degrees of Freedom F Statistic P -Value
Model 169.45 12 1.77 0.062
Storage Time 42.84 3 1.78 0.154
Storage Temperature 97.49 3 4.06 0.009
Time*Temperature Interaction 18.83 6 0.39 0.883
Residual 912.02 114   
Total 1081.48 126   
  1. Two-way factorial ANOVA analysis revealed no significant associations between time, or the interaction of time and temperature, on the ability to PCR detect Plasmodium parasites in infected mosquitoes.
  2. Adjusted R-squared=0.068.
  3. Number of Observations=127.
