Foot And Mouth Disease Virus (FMDV) Test Kit
This rapid test is an immuno-chromatographic test, using colloidal gold immunoassay method, to detect the antibody against FMD virus in whole blood, serum. After adding sample, the sample move along with the colloidal gold labeling FMD antigen, is there is FMD antibody in the sample, it combines with antigen on T line and show wine-red color; if there is no FMD antibody, then no color reaction.
FMD Ab test Card: 50 pieces
Dropper: 50 pieces
Antibody titers Colorimetric Card: 1 piece
Disposable gloves: 1 pair
Manual: 1 piece
1) Collect whole blood, separate serum (centrifuge at 2000-3000 r/min for 5~15min or separate out naturally at 4℃ overnight), or take whole blood with anticoagulants as sample. Take whole blood without anticoagulants as sample is also OK, but must test it immediately.
2) Open the package, take out test card, put it on clean, flat desk.
3) Use dropper to absorb the sample, adding 3 drops sample into “S” mark well slowly drop by drop.
4) Judge the result in 10-20min, it is invalid beyond 20min.
Consults for diagnosis
1). If not inoculated by the bacterin against porcine FMD virus:
a. test line don’t appear visible wine red show there are no antibodies against porcine FMD virus in tested samples, if the swine are healthy, it is better to vaccinate in time;
b. test line appear visible wine red show the pig was infected with wild virus, should be more observed to validate.
2). if have been inoculated by the bacterin against porcine FMD virus:
a. the color of test line is thicker than the color of the titer 1:32 from comparison card show the high titer of the antibody against porcine FMD virus, which is enough to resist the strong virus;
b. the color of test line is thinner than the color of the titer 1:32 from comparison card show the the titer of the antibody against porcine FMD virus is not enough to resist the strong virus, it is better to perform complementary vaccination.
