Table 1 Results of measures of diagnostic performance of serological tests studied based on manufacturer’s recommendations and based on ROC cut-off values

From: Serological diagnosis of canine leishmaniosis: comparison of three commercial ELISA tests (Leiscan®, ID Screen® and Leishmania 96®), a rapid test (Speed Leish K®) and an in-house IFAT

  1. aMeasures of diagnostic performance based on manufacturer’s recommendations.
  2. bMeasures of diagnostic performance based on ROC cut-off values. The new cut-off established for each test was: ID Screen® (Positive ≥ Ratio 41.97; Negative < Ratio 41.97), Leiscan® (Positive ≥ Ratio 0.77; Negative < Ratio 0.77), Leishmania 96® (Positive ≥ Ratio 0.52; Negative < Ratio 0.52) and IFAT (Positive ≥1:160; Negative <1:160).
