Over21 thanks for clarifying to me about the numbers.also the lab that did tests was called LabCorp.also over21 could you tell me the difference between hsv1, and hsv2 please.

She opened her Lab Corp test book and showed me, and I told her that her book is out of date and I pulled out my iPhone and showed her the Lab Corp site where it states that the test can be done via Blood. There is no mechanism, therefore, for testing for HSV-1 without simultaneously testing for HSV-2. HSV 1 igG Herpeselect Ab text: Interpretation: NEGATIVE HSV 2 igG Herpeselect Ab: 5. This assays detects the presence of herpes simplex virus DNA by real-time (PCR) amplification of the HSV glycoprotein B gene. The PCR test is not commonly done on the skin lesions themselves but it is best for testing spinal fluid. Labs) did not think that Blood HRC testing could be used for Herpes. LabCorp’s latest on HRC testing. We use the most accurate versions of these tests from both labs in our 10 STD Test Panel. Very accurate testing that includes HSV-1 to prevent misdiagnosis.

Last Thursday, the FDA gave formal clearance to the same Theranos herpes simplex test involved in yesterday’s waiver, finding that it was at least as accurate as the yardstick, FDA-approved lab test. Quest and LabCorp, for instance, command fleets of planes and trucks to ferry samples to giant hub labs. The analyzer testing my potassium ran what’s known as a general chemistry test, while the one checking for Ebola used a DNA-based exam for which Theranos is now seeking FDA emergency use authorization (a form of limited approval granted to fight specified epidemics). (I was negative for Ebola.). On 11/28/12(Lab corp) HIV 1/0/2 Abs index value 1(index value realtive to the negative cut off). HSV 2 IgG type specific 0.91, negative.
