The XN-30 hematology analyzer for rapid sensitive detection of malaria: a diagnostic accuracy study

Tags: None

This is the first prospective clinical study to present the diagnostic performance of XN-30. The sensitivity of XN-30 to detect Plasmodium falciparum parasitemia was superior to that of microscopy in qPCR-confirmed cases, whereas the specificity was comparable. XN-30 had an equal or higher sensitivity than HRP-2 and pLDH respectively, and a higher specificity than both for microscopy-confirmed malaria. Our results are in line with results from a recently published retrospective study on the performance of the XN-30 from South Africa [15]. The accuracy of malaria microscopy (LOD 24 p/μL) in the
