Herpes Simplex 2 IgG ELISA Kit

  • Created on the 22 August, 2017.

BACKGROUND

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.

INTENDED USE

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) in samples of serum or plasma. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 0.98 U/ml.

SENSITIVITY

The minimum detection sensitivity level of human herpes simplex virus-2 (HSV-2) IgG using this human HSV-2 IgG ELISA kit was 0.98 U/ml. The dynamic assay range for this kit is 1.0 – 150.0 U/ml.

I carried out a pilot study comparing the performance of many ELISA kits from different suppliers and found your kits to be one of the better performers. We observed good linearity and tight replicates.
