Incubated Anti-HSV-1 ELISA. Specific confirmatory tests for antibodies against HSV-1 or HSV-2. A new sensitive and rapid enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) test (Du Pont HERPCHEK) for the detection of herpes simplex virus (HSV) antigen was evaluated. ELISA research-use-only kit is to be used for the quantitative determination of Herpes Simplex Virus in samples (e.g., cell culture supernatants, plasma, serum) using 96-well plates and a microplate reader.
Background. The commercial Kalon HSV-2 IgG ELISA is currently recommended for research use in sub-Saharan Africa because of its superior accuracy compared to other serologic assays. Indirect immunoenzyme assay to test antibodies against herpes simplex virus in human serum/plasma. Sensitivity and specificity of HerpeSelect-1 ELISA were each 89 in this group.
Nationwide, 15.5 of persons aged 14 to 49 years have HSV-2 infection. Serologic tests are blood tests that detect antibodies to the herpes virus. Several ELISA-based serologic tests are FDA approved and available commercially.
