Intended use:

For in vitro diagnostic use. The RIDASCREEN® HSV 2 tests are an enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative determination of IgG or IgM antibodies against the Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV 2) in human serum.

The tests should be used for confirmation purposes when there is a suspected case of infection with HSV 2 or for clarifying the immune status.

General Information:

After infection with HSV, specific antibodies are formed against the pathogen as a result of the response from the immune system. By using immunological methods, it is possible to determine the antibodies in the serum. Both the test method used and the choice of the pathogen-specific antigen have a significant influence on the test result.

Test principle:
Purified antigens are coated to a microwell plate. Antibodies in the patient samples bind to the antigens and are determined during the second incubation step by using enzyme-labelled anti-human antibodies (the conjugate). The enzyme converts the colourless substrate (H2O2/TMB) to a blue end product. The enzyme reaction is stopped by adding sulphuric acid and the colour of the mixture switches from blue to yellow at the same time. The final measurement is carried out at 450 nm on a photometer using a reference wavelength ≥ 620 nm.
