Figure 1

Examples of the different test outcomes of the PCR-NALFIA. a) No control and no test line are visible. This is a test failure but can also be seen when only water is amplified (negative control) b) A positive control line and a negative test line are visible indicating that the test is valid but that no parasite DNA is detected c) Next to the control a Plasmodium line and a specific line for P. falciparum is present indicating a P. falciparum infection d) Next to the control and Plasmodium line the specific line for P. vivax is visible indicating a P. vivax infection. e) Both a positive control and a positive test line for Plasmodium are visible indicating a valid test positive for Plasmodium but negative for P. falciparum and P. vivax.
