Table 4 Informative beta priors used in the estimation of AMDV-VP2 ELISA sensitivity (Se) and specificity (Sp) with a 2-test 2-population Bayesian model

From: Validation of an automated ELISA system for detection of antibodies to Aleutian mink disease virus using blood samples collected in filter paper strips
