Notes:

a A sample is considered detected only if all RDTs from both lots read by the first technician, at minimum specified reading time, are positive

b The total number of times a positive result for malaria was generated when it should not have been

c Round 1, n=79; Round 2, n=100; Round 3, n=99; Round 4, n=98; Round 5, n=100

d Round 1, n=20; Round 2, n=40; Round 3, n=35; Round 4, n=34; Round 5, n=35

e For combination tests, Pan or Pv line, only, positive indicates a false positive non P. falciparum infection (Round 1 n=316; Round 2, n=400; Round 3, n=396; Round 4, n=392; Round 5, n=400)

f Pf line positive indicates a false positive P. falciparum infection (Round 1, n=80; Round 2, n=160; Round 3, n=140; Round 4, n=136; Round 5, n=140)

g For combination tests, Pan or Pv line, only, positive indicates a false positive non-P. falciparum infection (Round 1, n=158, Round 2, n=200; Round 3, n=198; Round 4, n=196; Round 5, n=200)

h Pf line positive indicates a false positive P. falciparum infection (Round 1, n=40; Round 2, n=80, Round 3, n=70; Round 4, n=68; Round 5, n=70)
