From: Rapid protein profiling facilitates surveillance of invasive mosquito species

Mix ratios 3/3/4
Number of pools tested 18
Total number of spots measured (technical replicates) 72
Number of the 4 technical replicates yielding identification of 2 species  
4 95.80%
≥3 100.00%
≥2 100.00%
≥1 100.00%
Number of the 4 technical replicates yielding identification of all 3 species  
4 87.50%
≥3 88.80%
≥2 94.40%
≥1 97.60%
  1. Six biological replicates have been performed per pools containing Ae. aegypti/Ae. albopictus/Ae. japonicus in ratio 3/3/4 in all three possible variations.
