  • a For SIV and SFV two different primer sets were used; where results agree only one result appears in the table.

  • b CMR, chimpanzee meal remain.

  • c Samples were tested with specific primers for red colobus virus (wrc) and with generic primers for virus.

  • d Numbers in parentheses are numbers of samples tested.

  • e Partial result; no material was available to test four individuals with generic primers for SIV.

  • f Partial result; no material was available to test five individuals with generic primers for SFV.
