Methods

The EURL for FMD, among other missions, gathers data and information on the methods of diagnosis and differential diagnosis used in the different National Laboratories. A list of methods inspired by the OIE official methods is available on this website.

 

All methods used for FMD detection, including commercial kits, must be OIE-based methods validated according to international standards.

You will find attached the most recent version of the OIE terrestrial manual chapter regarding foot-and-mouth disease. 

 

Diagnostic methods for FMD detection and typing are described in the OIE Terrestrial Manual.

This document sums up the diagnostic strategy as a decision tree describing the workflow for implementation of the different methods prescribed. 

All methods used, including commercial kits, must be OIE-based methods validated according to international standards and used successfully in the annual PT.

 

This SOP is the OIE-based method currently used at the EURL for FMD.

All other methods used, including commercial kits, must be OIE-based methods validated according to international standards and used successfully in the annual PT.
