Summary of "Suitability of commercially available POC-CCA tests for schistosomiasis: Considerations for efficiency, reproducibility and decision making criteria for field application in areas of low endemicity."

Point of care tests would be valuable for field diagnosis. However, high sensitivity will likely be required in low endemicity sets where individuals with low schistosome burden are hard to diagnose.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The statistical reproducibility of measurements (often in a clinical context), including the testing of instrumentation or techniques to obtain reproducible results. The concept includes reproducibility of physiological measurements, which may be used to develop rules to assess probability or prognosis, or response to a stimulus; reproducibility of occurrence of a condition; and reproducibility of experimental results.
