DNA Amplification Assay for the Detection of Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 and Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2.
The illumigene HSV 1&2 DNA amplification assay, performed on the illumipro-10, is a qualitative in vitro diagnostic test for the direct detection and differentiation of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) and herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) in cutaneous and mucocutaneous lesion specimens. illumigene HSV 1&2 utilizes loop-mediated isothermal DNA amplification (LAMP) technology to detect HSV-1 and HSV-2 by targeting segments of the herpes simplex virus 1 and herpes simplex virus 2 genomes. Results from illumigene HSV 1&2 are used as an aid in the diagnosis of HSV infection in male and female symptomatic patients.
