Classical swine fever (CSF) and foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) are two major trans-boundary animal diseases (TADs) having economic impact on the South-East Asian region. This paper describes the various diagnostic tests available for CSF and FMD, the limitations of each and their potential application in a low technology setting. The need to have complementary field and laboratory operations including suitable samples and transport methods are discussed, and examples are given. The importance of a quality assurance system to assess the accuracy and precision of diagnostic results is highlighted.
