Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 and/or 2 Antibodies, IgG & IgM (CSF) with Reflex to Type 1 & 2 Glycoprotein G-Specific Ab, IgG
Not recommended for herpes simplex virus (HSV) testing; lacks adequate predictive value for acute infection. Preferred testing is Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV-1/HSV-2) Subtype by PCR (2010095).
Semi-Quantitative Chemiluminescent Immunoassay/Semi-Quantitative Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay
New York DOH Approval Status
Transfer 1 mL CSF to an ARUP Standard Transport Tube. (Min: 0.5 mL)
Specimen types other than CSF. Contaminated, heat-inactivated, or hemolyzed specimens.
Ambient: 8 hours; Refrigerated: 2 weeks; Frozen: 1 year
|HSV 1 and/or 2 Antibodies IgM, CSF||0.89 IV or less|
|HSV 1/2 Antibody Screen IgG, CSF||0.89 IV or less|
This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by ARUP Laboratories. It has not been cleared or approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. This test was performed in a CLIA certified laboratory and is intended for clinical purposes.
|Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 and/or 2 Antibodies, IgM, CSF by ELISA||0.89 IV or less; Negative - No significant level of detectable HSV IgM antibody.
0.90-1.09 IV; Equivocal - Questionable presence of IgM antibodies. Repeat testing in 10-14 days may be helpful.
1.10 IV or greater; Positive - IgM antibody to HSV detected which may indicate a current or recent infection. However, low levels of IgM antibodies may occasionally persist for more than 12 months post-infection.
|Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 and/or 2 Antibodies, IgG, CSF||0.89 IV or less: Negative - No significant level of detectable HSV IgG antibody.
0.90-1.09 IV: Equivocal - Questionable presence of IgG antibodies. Repeat testing in 10-14 days may be helpful.
1.10 IV or greater: Positive - IgG antibody to HSV detected which may indicate a current or past HSV infection.
Laboratory Developed Test (LDT)
If HSV 1/2 IgG, CSF is greater than or equal to 1.10 IV , then HSV 1 gG-Specific IgG, CSF and HSV 2 gG-Specific IgG, CSF will be added. Additional charges apply.
