Seeplex®HSV2 ACE Detection

Detection of HSV1 & HSV2

  • ACE
  • CE IVD


Herpes simplex virus, which causes minor skin lesions to fatal diseases such as encephalitis, has 2 types – type 1 (HSV1) and type 2 (HSV2). HSV1 produces most cold sores, while most of the genital herpes are caused by HSV2.

The type of HSV defines patients' prognosis and the sort of treatment needed, requiring type-specific identification of HSV causing the infection. 95% of patients infected with genital HSV2 experience recurrences and subclinical shedding much more frequently than those with HSV1. Genital HSV2 is also often associated with substantial morbidity and even mortality. On the other hand, symptoms of HSV1 can be very mild and recurrences usually last for only a few days. 

HSV2 ACE Detection is provided with Internal Control (HSV IC). This HSV IC enables users to confirm nucleic acid isolation procedure and to determine possibility of any PCR inhibitors.


  1. Differentiates HSV1 and HSV2 within a single PCR
  2. Multiplex PCR with high sensitivity and specificity by applying DPO™ (Dual Priming Oligonucleotide) technology
  3. Applicable for Auto-capillary Electrophoresis instruments
  4. A single round PCR process reduces the carryover contamination risk, and 8-MOP, which is included in product, eliminates the contamination risk from PCR products
