Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To understand the indirect hemagglutination test capabilities of personnel from the institutes of schistosomiasis control at the basic levels in lake areas.

METHODS:

All the contestants were grouped by the operation standard, qualitative judgment, quantitative determination, and geographical location of Hunan and Hubei provinces, and their scores were statistically analyzed by SPSS 16.0 software.

RESULTS:

The total scores of the contestants of the two provinces were high and there was no significant difference between them. Among the professional persons, the scores of operation standard and qualitative judgment were significantly higher than those of quantitative determination. There were no significant differences among the scores grouped by the different genders, ages, professional titles and areas (all P > 0.05).

CONCLUSIONS:

The quantitative determination of indirect hemagglutination test of personnel from the institutes of schistosomiasis control at the basic levels is not very good. Therefore, the training of test capacity still should be strengthened.
