Table 1 Prevalence of Plasmodium falciparum all stages as determined by three diagnostic tests (LM, RDT and MDM) and gametocytes prevalence determined by LM and MDM only, in both cases n = 303

From: Application of magnetic cytosmear for the estimation of Plasmodium falciparum gametocyte density and detection of asexual stages in asymptomatic children

  LM (%) 95 % CI RDT (%) 95 % CI MDM (%) 95 % CI
All stages 23 (7.6) 4.9–11.2 52 (17.2) 13.1–21.9 59 (19.5) 15.2–24.4
Gametocytes 4 (1.3) 0.4–3.3 12 (4) 2.1–6.8
