Table 2 Mean carbon dioxide concentrations during behavioural experiments in the olfactometer.

From: Cultured skin microbiota attracts malaria mosquitoes

Mean CO2 concentration (ppm) ± SE
Time (min) Sterile blood agar Skin microbiota on blood agar P-value
1-3 439.90 ± 1.63 441.18 ± 1.72 0.58
4-6 438.02 ± 1.58 438.59 ± 1.63 0.80
7-9 435.20 ± 1.52 435.60 ± 1.58 0.85
10-12 432.74 ± 1.48 434.09 ± 1.52 0.52
13-15 430.71 ± 1.43 432.17 ± 1.47 0.48
  1. Carbon dioxide concentrations (ppm ± SE) were measured in front of the trapping device (Figure 1) with skin microbiota on blood agar and in front of the trapping device with sterile blood agar. Time indicates minutes after release of mosquitoes and start of each experiment.
