This kit is to utilize in vitro PCR amplification for detecting Herpes Simplex Virus type 1 DNA in Herpes ulcer-site scraping smear, genital tract swab, urinary tract swab and cerebrospinal fluid specimens and to assist in the diagnosis of Herpes Simplex Virus type 1 infection. The result is for research only, and not intend for clinical diagnosis.

This kit includes a pair of HSV1 specific primers, one single-strand HSV1 specific fluorescence probe, PCR reaction solution, thermostable DNA polymerase (Taq DNA polymerase), four nucleotide monomers (deoxynucleoside triphosphates, dNTPs). The HSV1 DNA is to be detected by in vitro PCR amplification.
