RT-rtPCR detection of P. falciparum in mosquito secretions collected from mosquitoes with high, middle and low sporozoite loads on day 15 to 19 post-exposure. a Detection of P. falciparum in saliva vs excreta in mosquitoes from the cohorts with different sporozoite loads. Wilcoxon matched-pairs sign ranked test. Detection of P. falciparum in saliva (b) excreta (c) from mosquitoes with different sporozoite loads. Kruskal–Wallis one-way ANOVA with Dunn’s multiple comparison test. Data are the median Ct value ± 95% CI. Each dot represents a group of 5 mosquitoes in a container. Lower Ct values correspond to a greater concentration of starting template
