Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 and/or 2 Antibodies, IgG and IgM with Reflex to Type 1 and 2 Glycoprotein G-Specific Ab, IgG
Not recommended for herpes simplex virus (HSV) testing; IgM lacks adequate predictive value for acute infection. If pursing antibody testing, refer to Herpes Simplex Type 1 and Type 2 Glycoprotein G-Specific Antibodies, IgG by CIA (0051152). If acute HSV infection is suspected, molecular testing is preferred (refer to Herpes Simplex Virus by PCR (0060041)).
Semi-Quantitative Chemiluminescent Immunoassay/Semi-Quantitative Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay
Serum separator tube.
Transfer 1 mL serum to an ARUP Standard Transport Tube. (Min: 0.5 mL) Parallel testing is preferred and convalescent specimens must be received within 30 days from receipt of the acute specimens. Mark specimens plainly as "acute" or "convalescent."
Refer to individual components. CSF (refer to Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 and/or 2 Antibodies, IgG & IgM (CSF) with Reflex to Type 1 & 2 Glycoprotein G-Specific Ab, IgG, test code 0050364).Refer to individual components.
After separation from cells: Ambient: 48 hours; Refrigerated: 2 weeks; Frozen: 1 year (avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles)
|HSV Type 1/2 Combined Ab, IgG||0.89 IV or less: Not Detected.
0.90-1.09 IV: Indeterminate - Repeat testing in 10-14 days may be helpful.
1.10 IV or greater: Detected.

Refer to individual components for interpretive data.
No compliance statements are in use for this test.
If HSV 1 and/or 2 IgG is 1.10 IV or greater, then HSV 1 gG-Specific IgG and HSV 2 gG-Specific IgG will be added. Additional charges apply.
