In Europe, clinical signs indicative of foot-and-mouth disease (FMD), would immediately lead to collection of blood and relevant organ material for further laboratory examination for this vesicular disease virus.

The aim of this study was to investigate the diagnostic utility of stabilized blood for detection of FMDV RNA in this system.
