Planning & analysis tools

Prevalence calculator for tests with known sensitivity and specificity

Given test results in a population sample, using a test with known sensitivity and specificity, what is the posterior distribution of prevalence in the population?

Prevalence calculator for tests with lab calibration data

Given test results in a population sample, and the test's lab calibration data, what is the posterior distribution of prevalence in the population, test sensitivity, and test specificity?

Data Collections

The COVID Tracking Project has aggregated data on serological testing into a phenomenal Airtable much of which is summarized in the Literature section below.

FindDx has created a serological test kit roundup, scattered by sensitivity and specificity. Hover over a data point to learn about the test and its calibration data.
