Herpes Simplex VirusHerpes simplex virus (HSV) is characterized into two different serotypes. Traditionally HSV-1 has generally been associated with infection in the tongue, mouth, lips, pharynx and eyes; whereas HSV-2 was primarily associated with genital and neonatal infection. The area of infection associated with each serotype is now changing, particularly in developed countries where HSV-1 is increasingly associated with genital infections.

Differentiation of serotype is important, because the prognosis is substantially different for the two types. Recurrences are much more common in people with HSV2 than with HSV1 genital infection.

Trinity Biotech provides a range of type-specific and combined EIAs, DFAs and rapid test devices.
