Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ PathoDx™ Herpes Typing Control Slide is used with Herpes immunofluorescent assays. Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) is an ancient and ubiquitous virus, known to cause acute and recurrent infections in humans. In the 1960s, it was recognized that HSV consisted of two distinct types, HSV-I and HSV-II1. HSV-I was considered to be primarily associated with ocular and oral infection (above the waist) while HSV-II was considered to be a genital infection (below the waist).

PathoDx Herpes Typing Kit uses four fluorescein-labeled monoclonal antibodies specific for HSV-I and HSV-II (two for HSV-I; two for HSV-II) to detect and identify Herpes Simplex Virus. The standard method for diagnosis of HSV has been growth in tissue culture cells2,3. The reagents are specific for each HSV type and will not show any cross-reactive staining.
