What is the Scientific Data from the Instrument and Reagent Supplier?

Technology Method:

Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)

Limit of Detection:

Type I: 324 copies/mL. Type II: 404 copies/mL


In the kit’s positive and negative reference controls, the positive and negative coincidence rates were 100%.


No cross-reactivity of the kit between the microorganisms was observed.

Accuracy: Precision reference controls were checked 10 times, and the Ct value’s coefficient of variation (CV%) was no greater than 5%.



HSV Type I, HSV Type II

Validation-Active Information:

  • EQA: Yes
  • Inter-laboratory validations
    • Periodic according to the validation schedule
    • Event-triggered- QC/Calibration/New materials/Batch


The accuracy of our diagnostic exams is defined as the combination of sensitivity and specificity variables. Sensitivity is the method’s ability to confirm positive results; specificity eliminates negative results. All our methods are validated with high accuracy (up to 98.5%).


Accuracy can be affected by various factors that our lab cannot control. Infection intensity, patient health, and sample quality, dependent on adherence to “home sampling” procedures, can all limit the results. Although our PCR processes are extremely sensitive, a poor-quality swab makes it harder to detect the presence of infection, as fewer viral particles will be present. Please carefully consider the information sheet accompanying your sample collection kit to ensure a high-quality sample.

Virus Detection

The HSV PCR Test kit is designed to accurately detect the presence of Human papillomavirus in the sample. A positive result distinguishes between HSV Type I and HSV Type II or if both types are present in the sample.

Any diagnosis should be discussed with your healthcare provider. Any results from our medical diagnostics laboratory are intended to be viewed by healthcare professionals. This can be done with the patient’s medical history, lifestyle, and other factors that may influence the results, which should be shared with your GP when discussing these results.

Positive result

A positive result suggests the presence of viral particles in the sample during sampling. Upon receiving positive results, you should contact your healthcare provider for treatment. You can also obtain a prescription through our website. The Herpes Test may detect the Simplex Virus, and even though the patient does not present symptoms of the disease, you may still be infectious to others.

Negative result

While this can provide reassurance, it is important to understand its significance. However, this means the process did not detect the presence of infection during sampling. Results should still be discussed with a healthcare provider while considering lifestyle and sexual history. If you are in contact with someone who is positive for the disease or begins to present symptoms consistent with the disease, you should contact your GP.
