Herpes Simplex Virus 1/2 Antibody (IgM), IFA with Reflex to Titer, Serum

 

Reference Range: Negative

 

The IFA procedure for measuring IgM antibodies to HSV 1 and HSV 2 detects both type-common and type-specific HSV antibodies. Thus, IgM reactivity to both HSV 1 and HSV 2 may represent crossreactive HSV antibodies rather than exposure to both HSV 1 and HSV 2.
