Table 2 Double blind trial to compare results SSOP-ELISA for kdr genotyping to results of standard multiplex PCR methods using control strains of known genotype (L, Dondotha/R70; F, VKPR; S, RSP) as individuals or in mixtures.

From: Occurrence of the leucine-to-phenylalanine knockdown resistance (kdr) mutation in Anopheles arabiensis populations in Tanzania, detected by a simplified high-throughput SSOP-ELISA method

  1. 1method of Ranson et al. (2000); L = susceptible band present, S = kdr band present
  2. 2method of Martinez-Torres et al. (1998); L = susceptible band present, F = kdr band present
  3. -- = band absent (genotype does not correspond to kdr-specific detection method)
  4. X = band absent (genotype not detected by corresponding method)
