HSV 1/2 IgM

Product Description

The HSV 1/2 IgM test is a chemiluminescent immunoassay (CLIA), for use on IDS automated analyzers,  for quantitative determination of specific IgM class antibodies directed against the Herpes Simplex Virus type 1 and 2 (HSV 1/2) in samples of human serum or plasma (K3-EDTA, Sodium Citrate).

This assay is used as a diagnostic aid when assessing HSV type 1 and 2 infections.

  • Complete Panel for the HSV infection detection (HSV IgG, HSV IgM).
  • Direct type 1 and 2 identification kits (HSV-1 IgG, HSV-2 IgG).
  • High specificity and sensitivity of the IgG and IgM kits.
  • Low cross reactivity with other Herpesvirus family immunoglobulins.
