Table 5 Positive LSU qPCR results were compared with 18S qPCR results from a prospective analysis performed on canine diagnostic samples naturally infected with Babesia spp.

From: Improved molecular detection of Babesia infections in animals using a novel quantitative real-time PCR diagnostic assay targeting mitochondrial DNA

Total samples (n = 394) 18S LSU
B. canis (+) 2 2
B. vogeli (+) 2 2
B. coco (+) 0 2
B. gibsoni (+) 7 12
B. microti-like (+) 0 1
% Positive (95% CI) 2.8 (1.1–4.4%) 4.8 (3.1–7.5%)
  1. (+) = Cq value obtained, T m value was correct
