Foot-and-mouth disease virus RT-PCR Kit uses Taqman fluorescent probes to amplify and detect the foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) gene.
Foot and mouth disease (FMD) is a severe, highly contagious viral disease of livestock that has a significant economic impact. The disease affects cattle, swine, sheep, goats and other cloven-hoofed ruminants. Intensively reared animals are more susceptible to the disease than traditional breeds. The disease is rarely fatal in adult animals, but there is often high mortality in young animals due to myocarditis or, when the dam is infected by the disease, lack of milk.
FMD is characterised by fever and blister-like sores on the tongue and lips, in the mouth, on the teats and between the hooves. The disease causes severe production losses, and while the majority of affected animals recover, the disease often leaves them weakened and debilitated.
The disease may be suspected based on clinical signs. However, FMD cannot be differentiated clinically from other vesicular diseases, such as swine vesicular disease, vesicular stomatitis, and vesicular exanthema.

Performance of the Foot-and-mouth disease virus RT-PCR Kit
This kit uses Taqman fluorescent probes to amplify and detect the foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) gene, and can be applied to the detection of foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) nucleic acid in tissue samples such as blister skin or blister fluid, pharyngeal mucus, tonsils, lymph nodes, and muscles of animals.
