MAPIA: multiantigenimmunoprint assay; BovidTB STAT-PAK: lateral flow test (Chembio Diagnostic Systems, Inc., USA); N/E: natural or experimental infection; nSe: number of TB positive animals used for evaluation of Se; nSp: number of TB negative animals used for evaluation of Sp; Se: sensitivity; Sp: specificity; ND: not defined, Se and Sp were estimated based on Bayesian analysis (absence of gold standard).
