Notes:

a A sample is considered detected only if all RDTs from both lots read by the first technician, at minimum specified reading time, are positive

b Rate of positive test results for malaria when the results should have been negative. The number in parentheses indicates the total number of tests, being by default: Round 1, n=168; Round 2, n=200; Round 3, n=200; Round 4, n=232; Round 5, n=236

c Round 1, n=79; Round 2, n=100; Round 3, n=99; Round 4, n=98; Round 5, n=100

d Round 1, n=20; Round 2, n=40; Round 3, n=35; Round 4, n=34; Round 5, n=35

e For combination tests, Pan or Pv line, only, positive indicates a false positive non P. falciparum infection. The number in parentheses indicates the total number of tests, being by default: Round 1 n=316; Round 2, n=400; Round 3, n=396; Round 4, n=392; Round 5, n=400

f Pf line positive indicates a false positive P. falciparum infection. The number in parentheses indicates the total number of tests, being by default: Round 1, n=80; Round 2, n=160; Round 3, n=140; Round 4, n=136; Round 5, n=140

g For combination tests, Pan or Pv line, only, positive indicates a false positive non-P. falciparum infection. The number in parentheses indicates the total number of tests, being by default: Round 1, n=158, Round 2, n=200; Round 3, n=198; Round 4, n=196; Round 5, n=200

h Pf line positive indicates a false positive P. falciparum infection. The number in parentheses indicates the total number of tests, being by default: Round 1, n=40; Round 2, n=80, Round 3, n=70; Round 4, n=68; Round 5, n=70

i Round 1, n=168; Round 2, n=200; Round 3, n=200; Round 4, n=232; Round 5, n=236

j Product resubmission, results from most recent round of testing replace previous results.

k PDS presented in the table is based on an overall PDS result and then, in parentheses, the PDS based on separate performance of the pf-HRP2 and pf-pLDH test lines, respectively. More details of results can be found in the tables and annexes of the full reports.
