Herpes simplex virus (also called HSV) is a one of the most common infections which causes herpes. This tends to appear mostly on the mouth or the genitals but can also be found in various other parts of the body. HSV-1 is also referred to as oral herpes and this type is responsible for causing cold sores and fever blisters around the face and mouth. The infection with HSV-1 can happen through general interactions for example sharing lip balm, eating from same utensils and kissing. The virus can spread more rapidly if an infected person is experiencing an outbreak. One of the gold standard which is routinely used for diagnosing HSV infections remains isolation of the virus in tissue culture, following by indirect immunofluorescence, western blotting. A finished infection can be monitored using IgG ELISA procedure.
Human HSV-1 IgG ELISA kit is designed for analysing in-vitro quantitative levels of human IgG antibodies to herpes simplex virus-1 (HSV-1) is samples of plasma and serum. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.1 U/ml.
The minimum detection sensitivity level of human herpes simplex virus-1 (HSV-1) IgG using this human HSV-1 IgG ELISA kit was 1.1 U/ml. The dynamic assay range for this kit is 1.0 – 125.0 U/ml.
