Table 1 Comparison of the sensitivity and specificity of nanoPCR and conventional PCR analysis for detection of MEV in fecal samples

From: Development of a nanoparticle-assisted PCR (nanoPCR) assay for detection of mink enteritis virus (MEV) and genetic characterization of the NS1 gene in four Chinese MEV strains

nanoPCR Conventional PCR
Positive Negative Total
Positive 80 45 125
Negative 0 121 121
Total 80 166 246
  1. Percentage of agreement: (80 + 121)/246 = 81.7%; relative sensitivity: 80/80 = 100%; relative specificity: 121/166 = 72.9%.
