Talk to Sales
The OnSite Duo HSV-1/2 IgG/IgM Rapid Test is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay for qualitative detection and differentiation of antibodies (IgG and IgM) to herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) and herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2) in human serum, plasma or whole blood. This test can be performed in 10 minutes by minimally skilled personnel without the use of laboratory equipment.
This test is intended to be used by professionals as a screening test and provides a preliminary test result to aid in the diagnosis of infection with HSV-1 and/or HSV-2.
The OnSite Duo HSV-1/2 IgG/IgM Rapid Test uses HSV-1 glycoprotein G1 and HSV-2 glycoprotein G2 for the specific detection and differentiation of IgG and IgM antibodies to HSV-1 and HSV-2 in serum, plasma and whole blood. An HSV-1 and/or HSV-2 IgM positive result indicates an active infection, which may be primary or recurrent. An HSV-1 and/or HSV-2 IgG positive result indicates a recent or past infection. However, a negative test result does not preclude the possibility of infection with HSV-1 and/or HSV-2.
Any interpretation or use of this preliminary test result must also rely on other clinical findings as well as on the professional judgment of health care providers. Alternative test method(s) should be considered to confirm the test result obtained by this device.
