Herpes Simplex Virus 1 & 2, DNA PCR
This test is used to detect the presence of HSV DNA in the blood as soon as 28 days from exposure and determines which type is present in the positive samples. This is a qualitative PCR test that will provide a positive or negative result (detected or not detected). PCR testing of blood is clinically useful in potential cases of disseminated HSV infection where it is suspected that the virus has spread to other parts of the body other than oral or genital.
A complimentary physician consultation is included with this test if the results are positive. It will be up to the physician's discretion if a prescription will be provided.
Test results may take 3-5 business days once the specimen is received at the laboratory.
