Table 3 Agreement between MSP2 genotype calls between various combinations of capillary and venous samples

From: Comparison on simultaneous capillary and venous parasite density and genotyping results from children and adults with uncomplicated malaria: a prospective observational study in Uganda

  Capillary-Venous Venous-Venous Venous-Capillary
Capillary-Capillary 0.71 (0.49–0.94) 0.45 (0.15, 0.75) 0.77 (0.55, 0.98)
Capillary-Venous 0.68 (0.45, 0.92) 0.84 (0.67, 1.00)
VV 0.62 (0.36, 0.87)
  1. Simple Kappa coefficient and 95% confidence interval. Capillary-Capillary (capillary day 0 compared to capillary day of failure); Capillary-Venous (capillary day 0 compared to venous day of failure); Venous-Venous (venous day 0 compared to venous day of failure); Venous-Capillary (venous day 0 compared to capillary day of failure)
