Wolbachia presence No
Confidence level Low
Explanation of confidence level

Due to the fact that the positive control arthropod in well 4 showed no band at 438 bp indicating Wolbachia prescience the rest of the experiment is invalidated. It remains inconclusive if the arthropod being observed in well 2 is infected with wolbachia because there is no control to reference it to.
