Ct values dot plots of PCR-positive samples for the seven eukaryotic enteric pathogens: Blastocystis spp. (n = 9), Cryptosporidium parvum/hominis (n = 8), Cyclospora cayetanensis (n = 10), Dientamoeba fragilis (n = 9), Giardia intestinalis (n = 8), Cystoisospora belli (n = 10) and Enterocytozoon bieneusi (n = 7) obtained with the two extraction procedures evaluated in the present study: EZ1® (EZ1) and QIAamp® DNA Stool Mini Kit® (QA). Mean values and standard deviation ranges for each pathogen are represented by large and short horizontal bars, respectively. Statistical significance is represented as **(p < 0.002) and ***(p < 0.0001). Different colours indicate different samples. Same samples are represented by the same colour
