Testing New RDT Formats to Improve Wb123 Test Sensitivity
To test alternative rapid diagnostic test (RDT) formats for the Wb123 rapid test. In field trials, the current test format was less sensitive that FTS in post-MDA settings whereas alternative Wb123 test formats (ELISA, multiplex) were more sensitive. Our group uses new detection systems, based on nanoshells, to improve RDT performance.
