    Foot-and-mouth disease, FMD or hoof-and-mouth disease (Aphtae epizooticae) is a highly


contagious and sometimes fatal viral disease of cloven-hoofed animals, including domestic


animals such as cattle, water buffalo, sheep, goats and pigs, as well as antelope, bison and


other wild bovids, and deer. It is caused by foot and Mouth disease virus.


Humans are very rarely affected by the virus. Foot and Mouth disease virus is the prototypic


member of the Aphthovirus genus in the Picornaviridae family. This picornavirus is the


etiological agent of the acute systemic vesicular disease that affects cattle and other animals


worldwide. It is a highly variable and transmissible virus.


There are seven FMD serotypes: O, A, C, SAT-1, SAT-2, SAT-3, and Asia-1. These serotypes


show some regionality, and the O serotype is most common.




Kit storage and stability


This kit is stable at room temperature but should be stored at -20ºC on arrival.


PrimerDesign does not recommend using the kit after the expiry date stated on the pack.


Once the lyophilized components have been re-suspended, unnecessary repeated


freeze/thawing should be avoided. The kit is stable for six months from the date of


resuspension under these circumstances.


Suitable sample material


All kinds of sample material suited for PCR amplification can be used. Please ensure the


samples are suitable in terms of purity, concentration, and RNA/DNA integrity (An internal


PCR control is supplied to test for non specific PCR inhibitors). Always run at least one


negative control with the samples. To prepare a negative-control, replace the template RNA


sample with RNAse/DNAse free water.


Dynamic range of test


Under optimal PCR conditions PrimerDesign genesig detection kits have very high priming


efficiencies of >95% and can detect less than 100 copies of target template.

Reagents and equipment to be supplied by the user
Real-Time PCR Instrument
RNA extraction kit
This kit is designed to work well with all processes that yield high quality RNA with minimal
PCR inhibitors.
Precision OneStepTM qRT-PCR MasterMix kit
Contains complete one step qRT-PCR MasterMix plus Standard MasterMix for no template
Optional - Reverse Transcription kit and Mastermix
