Cell-based assays are still used widely in foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) research, despite the existence of a wide variety of molecular techniques. The aim of this study was to validate an automated, quantitative spectrometric reading to replace the time-consuming and subjective microscopic (MIC) evaluation of the FMD virus-induced cytopathic effect (CPE). Therefore, the diagnostic performance of two commercial cell viability assays (CellTiter 96(®) AQueous One Solution Cell Proliferation Assay (MTS) and CellTiter-Blue(®) Cell Viability Assay (CTB), both from Promega, Leiden, The Netherlands…
