The current method outperforms Qiagen based kits for amplification of k13 from dried blood spots. a The optimized protocol (compatible with Omega EZ and Nunc 96-well DNA plates) is able to amplify k13 from all 5000 parasites/mL DBS samples, whereas Qiagen QIAamp and Investigator kits cannot. b Nunc DNA plates show improved sensitivity for amplification of 1000 parasites/mL DBS samples than Omega EZ DNA plates.
