Description

This test is intended for use as an aid in the diagnosis of herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections; it also differentiates HSV-1 from HSV-2. PCR testing of blood, serum, or plasma samples is clinically useful only in potential cases of disseminated HSV infection (neonates, immunosuppressed individuals) and not as an aid in the diagnosis of either mucosal or CNS disease.
