BioKit HSV-2 (Herpes) Rapid Test

For Professional Use Only


The biokit HSV-2 Rapid Test is a single unit, membrane-based immunoassay for the qualitative
determination, either in heparinized capillary whole blood taken by fingerstick or in serum, of
circulating IgG antibodies specific for herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2), which arise as a
result of infection with HSV-2. It is intended for in-vitro diagnostic use by health professionals in
Point of Care testing. The presence of antibodies to HSV-2 may be indicative of a previous
infection with HSV-2 and may be of value in determination of previous immunological
experience and to aid in the diagnosis of HSV associated disease. This assay will not
differentiate whether infection is currently in a latent or active state.

About Genital Herpes 
Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted disease caused by the herpes simplex viruses type 1 (HSV-1)
and type 2 (HSV-2). Over 80% of recurring genital herpes is due to HSV-2. Type-specific 
serology has been shown to be the best way to detect persons with subclinical or recurring genital herpes.
