Table 1 Statistical comparison of ova and parasite results and reference laboratory ELISA to DFA with calculated sensitivity and specificity

From: Comparative performance of reference laboratory tests and in-clinic tests for Giardia in canine feces

Reference laboratory test Sensitivity (95% CI) Specificity (95% CI) Prevalence adjusted % agreementa
Ova and Parasite (O&P) Test 81.2 (72.4–87.7) 93.4 (85.2–97.5) 92.7
ProSpecT Microtiter Plate ELISA 94.1 (87.4–97.5) 97.4 (90.4–99.8) 97.2
