Detection method: quantitative real-time PCR

The kit is intended for detection and DNA quantification of Herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV1) by real-time PCR method.

Clinical implications

Herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV1) is an enveloped DNA-virus of Herpesviridae family belonging to the Simplexvirus genus. For these viruses a short replication time and the ability to trigger latent infections of cells is typical. Mainly children are affected by the primary infection triggered by the HSV1 virus and it is usually inapparent. The most common demonstration of the infection in children is gingivostomatitis, less often then keratoconjunctivitis and meningoencephalitis. In adults, infections such as pharyngitis or rarely necrotizing encephalitis of the temporal lobe may occur.

Dual-labeled hydrolysis probes Dual-labeled hydrolysis probes

The technology of dual-labeled hydrolysis probes (also called TaqMan® probes) exploits the 5 ́-3 ́ exonuclease activity of Taq DNA polymerase to cleave dual-labeled hydrolysis probes. Hydrolysis probes are labeled at the 5´ end with a fluorescent dye (reporter) and at the 3´ end with a quencher.
