An experimental quality control related to the regional monitoring plan against Aedes albopticus (tiger-mosquito)
AbstractFollowing the epidemic disease caused by the Chikungunya virus detected in the Provinces of Romagna during 2007, a specific monitoring-plan against the bug-vector Aedes albopticus was set up by the Agenzia Regionale Prevenzione e Ambiente dell’Emilia Romagna (ARPA) in the he Emilia-Romagna region (Italy). The analytical method consisted in the simple enumeration of the mosquitoes eggs spawned on a appropriate substratum, using an optic microscope.The aim of this study was to guarantee data comparability among the several laboratories involved in the project. Using the Analysis of Variance (ANOVA), homogeneous and comparable analytical data were emphasised.
