Table 1 Success rates for HRP-2 and MSF assays in fresh Plasmodium falciparum isolates of varying parasitaemia

From: Direct comparison of the histidine-rich protein-2 enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (HRP-2 ELISA) and malaria SYBR green I fluorescence (MSF) drug sensitivity tests in Plasmodium falciparum reference clones and fresh ex vivo field isolates from Cambodia

% parasitaemia Success case (% success rate) Total cases
HRP-2 ELISA MSF assay
<0.02% 1 (50%) 0 (0%) 2
0.02 - <0.2% 13 (87%) 0 (0%) 15
≥0.2% 23 (96%) 15 (63%) 24
Overall success 37 (90%) 15 (37%) 41
  1. A total of 41 IEV Plasmodium falciparum isolates from Cambodia were evaluated in both the HRP-2 and MSF assays to determine % assay success rate.
