BACKGROUND Serologic testing for herpes simplex virus type-2 (HSV-2) is being implemented in sexually transmitted disease (STD) clinics. GOAL To determine the performance characteristics of two HSV-2 type-specific serologic assays in a public health laboratory. STUDY DESIGN Sera stored from a cross-sectional study were tested with the Meridian Diagnostics and Focus Technologies HSV-2 ELISA tests and a type-specific strip immunoblot assay (Chiron Corp.) was used as the reference standard… CONTINUE READING
