HSV OligoGen

HSV OligoGen is a test designed for the detection and differentiation of Herpes simplex virus type 1 and 2, by a common amplification and subsequent specific identification in two different oligoimmunochromatographic strips.

The HSV OligoGen kit relies on polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification of particular regions of the DNA of Herpes Simplex Virus and its subsequent detection by hybridizing to a specific probe, revealed on an oligoimmunochromatography strip.
