Figure 2

Predicted probabilities for M. ulcerans growth. Based on the M. ulcerans growth vs. no growth or contamination model the probability of M. ulcerans growth was predicted as a function of transport time for samples transported in Amies medium, decontaminated with NaOH for 10 minutes, inoculated onto LJ medium supplemented with PANTA and if the Ct value of the qPCR was 27.8. Mean predicted probability of the M. ulcerans growth rate and 95% confidence intervals are shown.
