Table 2 Sensitivity of egg identification in two-species pools of ten eggs in different mix ratios

From: Rapid protein profiling facilitates surveillance of invasive mosquito species

Mix ratio 10/0 9/1 8/2 7/3 6/4 5/5
Number of pools 24 24 24 24 24 12
Total number of spots measured (technical replicates) 96 96 96 96 96 48
Number of the 4 technical replicates yielding identification of both species  
4 0.0% 0.0% 0.0% 70.3% 75.0% 91.7%
≥3 0.0% 0.0% 16.7% 91.7% 91.7% 100.0%
≥2 0.0% 12.5% 20.8% 100.0% 100.0% 100.0%
≥1 0.0% 25.0% 37.5% 100.0% 100.0% 100.0%
  1. Three biological replicates have been performed per pools containing Ae. aegypti/Ae. japonicus, Ae. albopictus/Ae. geniculatus, Ae. albopictus/Ae. japonicus, Ae. geniculatus/Ae. japonicus.
