HSV 1/2 DNA Qualitative, CSF

Test Information

Test Name: HSV 1/2 DNA Qualitative, CSF

Performing Lab: Molecular Diagnostic

Synonyms: Herpes simplex PCR CSF

Order Includes: HSV by PCR, CSF

Turnaround Time: 4 days

Additional Interpretation: Rapid, direct, and sensitive detection of HSV-1 and/or HSV-2 in CSF, diagnosing and monitoring neuropathy, when HSV is suspected cause.

Methodology: This assay is based on the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using DNA extracted from CSF specimens. The presence of HSV DNA is determined during amplification by real-time detection of hydrolysis of fluorescent probe specific for HSV-1 and HSV-2 conserved regions.
