FCPH tests a large percentage of the mosquito pools collected in our communities, which is completed by using the Rapid Analyte Measurement Platform (RAMP) performed at the FCPH mosquito facility. It takes just over 90 minutes to obtain results. We utilize RAMP testing during the height of the West Nile virus transmission cycle (Mid-June through September) to offer the best possible response time to a positive test result. In addition, the Ohio Department of Health tests all mosquitoes we submitt to them for West Nile virus.
