Table 2 Comparison of diagnosis of Plasmodium species by PlasmoNex™ PCR and hydrolysis probes real-time PCR for the sample collected from Sabah (n = 207)

From: Molecular detection of human Plasmodium species in Sabah using PlasmoNex™ multiplex PCR and hydrolysis probes real-time PCR

Plasmodium spp No. of cases identified by PlasmoNex™ (%)
P. vivax P. falciparum P. knowlesi P. vivax+P. knowlesi+P. falciparum Total
No. of cases identified by species-specific real-time PCR* (%) P. vivax 16 (7.7) 0 0 0 16 (7.7)
P. falciparum 0 33 (15.9) 2 (1.0) 2 (1.0) 37 (17.9)
P. knowlesi 0 0 149 (72.0) 0 149 (72.0)
No speciation 4 (1.9) 0 1 (0.5) 0 5 (2.4)
Total 20 (9.7) 33 (15.9) 152 (73.4) 2 (1.0) 207 (100.0)
  1. *Real-time PCR speciation results were based on species-specific hydrolysis probes.
