Herpes Testing

Biomarkers included in this panel:

Herpes Simplex Virus 1 and 2 (IgG), Type-Specific Antibodies

Serum

This assay utilizes recombinant type-specific antigens to differentiate HSV-1 from HSV-2 infections. A index positive result cannot distinguish between recent and past infection. If recent HSV infection is suspected but the results are negative or eq

Herpes Simplex Virus 1 and 2 (IgM), Type-Specific Antibodies

A herpes IgM (immunoglobulin M) test is a blood test that can detect early herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection. HSV is a contagious condition that causes sores around the mouth or genitals. The IgM test does not detect herpes directly. Instead, it l

Herpesvirus 6 IGG (HHV-6)

Human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) is a set of two closely related herpesviruses, HHV6-A and HHV6-B. Human Herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) has long been suspected as one trigger for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Herpesvirus 6 IGM (HHV-6)

The detection of IgM antibodies specific to HHV-6 is a common diagnostic tool used to assess whether an individual has recently been exposed to or is currently experiencing an active infection with this virus. IgM antibodies are produced by the immun

HHV 6 IgG Antibodies

HHV-6 IgG antibodies are specific immunoglobulins that play a pivotal role in the serological diagnosis and understanding of infections caused by the Human Herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6). HHV-6, a member of the Betaherpesvirinae subfamily, is known for its ub

HSV 1 IgG, Type Spec

Herpes is a common viral infection caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). The virus exists as two main types, HSV-1 and HSV-2.  HSV testing identifies the presence of the virus in a sample from a blister, sore or fluid to diagnose an activ

HSV 1 IgM Antibodies

A herpes IgM (immunoglobulin M) test is a blood test that can detect early herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection. Herpes IgM is one of the first types of antibody that appears after infection, so this blood test is the earliest one that can be us

HSV 2 IgG Inhibition, IA

The marker HSV-2 IgG Inhibition, IA, refers to a specific immunological assay designed to detect IgG antibodies against Herpes Simplex Virus type 2 (HSV-2) in human serum or plasma samples. This assay is based on the principle of antibody inhibition,

HSV 2 IgG, Type Spec

Herpes is a common viral infection caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). The virus exists as two main types, HSV-1 and HSV-2.  HSV testing identifies the presence of the virus in a sample from a blister, sore or fluid to diagnose an activ

HSV 2 IgM Antibodies

Herpes Simplex Virus is a common pathogen of humans. The clinical course of HSV in humans is extremely variable. Primary infection with HSV, either type 1 or 2, is unapparent or subclinical in a majority of cases. When clinically apparent, HSV inf
