Herpes simplex virus (HSV) is separated into HSV1 and HSV2 that can cause minor skin lesion to a fatal disease such as encephalitis. HSV1 classically presents as herpes gingivostomatitis, an infection of the oral mucosa. HSV2 is the most common cause of genital ulcers in the United States. More than 95% of recurrent disease is due to HSV2. The main application for HSV typing is with regard to the clinical issue of recurrent infection. Most painful and annoying recurrent genital herpes is due to HSV2, and almost all recurrent cold sores or fever blisters are due to HSV1. However, genital herpes also can be caused by HSV1. This type of genital herpes is much less frequently recurrent and each recurrence usually lasts only a few days. It has been documented that as many as one third of herpes infections are due to HSV1, particularly in adolescents and young adults.
Differentiates HSV1 and HSV2 with a single PCR
Multiplex PCR with high sensitivity and specificity by applying DPO™ (Dual Priming Oligonucleotide) technology
DPO™ primer has two different priming portions which allows to specifically amplifies target DNAs.
Applicable for Auto-detection instruments
In addition to Agarose gel electrophoresis, application of Auto-detection system provides easy and convenient results read-out.
Contamination Prevention System
One-time PCR reduces the carryover contamination risk, and 8-MOP, which is included in each set of products, eliminates the contamination risk from PCR.
