[Correspondence] ReEBOV Antigen Rapid Test kit for Ebola

In their Article, Mara Jana Broadhurst and colleagues (Aug 29, p 867)1 reported that the ReEBOV Antigen Rapid Test (Corgenix, Broomfield, CO, USA) had a sensitivity of 100% and a specificity of 92·2%. These results differ from those reported by the manufacturer2 (62·1% sensitivity, 96·7% specificity), and from a study3 done in Sierra Leone by WHO (91·8%, 84·6%).
