Human HSV-2 IgG ELISA kit is intended for detecting in-vitro quantitative amounts of human IgG antibodies against herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV-2 IgG) in samples of serum or plasma. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 0.98 U/ml.
Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) is found to be the most common cause of genital herpes and this virus can transmitted by any skin-on-skin contact with an open sore or by sexual activity (oral, vaginal or anal). HSV-2 is highly contagious, it can spread through the secretions that occur from the mouth and the genitals. Blood tests can be used to identify antibodies to HSV-1 and HSV-2 in order to aid the diagnosis of these infections.
The minimum detection sensitivity level of IgG antibodies to herpes simplex virus-2 (HSV-2-IgG) using current human HSV-2 IgG ELISA kit was 0.98 U/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 1.0 – 150.0 U/ml.
