Abstract

In Bangladesh, a new parasite rapid antigen test was investigated demonstrating accuracy and feasibility. For Giardia species, it had a sensitivity and specificity of 94% and 100%, respectively. For Cryptosporidium species, it had a sensitivity and specificity of 100% and 100%, respectively. These are higher than or equal to the sensitivities and specificities of other tests on the market.
