Table 2 Sensitivity and specificity of BioFire and rapid test versus qPCR

From: Performance of BioFire array or QuickVue influenza A + B test versus a validation qPCR assay for detection of influenza A during a volunteer A/California/2009/H1N1 challenge study

Diagnostic test Sensitivity Specificity
TP/(TP + FN) % 95% CI TN/(TN + FP) % 95% CI
BioFire 98/136 72.1 63.7–79.4 201/215 93.5 89.3–96.4
Rapid test 15/176 8.5 4.8–13.7 122/123 99.2 95.6–100
  1. TPR true positive rate, TNR true negative rate, TP true positive, TN true negative, FP false positive, FN false negative, CI confidence interval
