The ARIES® HSV 1&2 Assay is a rapid molecular method for the detection and differentiation of Herpes Simplex Virus 1 and 2 (HSV 1 and 2) in cutaneous or mucocutaneous lesion specimens and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) using a sample to answer platform.*
Key features of this assay include:
HSV 1 and HSV 2 are common human pathogens that cause incurable infections in neonates, children and adults worldwide. Combined, HSV infections affect half a billion people between the ages of 15-49 years globally.1 HSV 1 is generally associated with infections in the tongue, mouth, lips, pharynx, and eyes, whereas HSV 2 is primarily associated with genital and neonate infections.
Viral isolation, direct or indirect fluorescent antibody testing, in situ hybridization, and serology can be used to diagnose HSV infections.2 However, due to the length of culture time, sample transport difficulties, procedural complexity, and a lack of desirable sensitivity, nucleic acid amplification methods such as PCR are often preferred as the diagnostic test method.3, 4
The reference/comparative method used to evaluate the clinical performance of the ARIES® HSV 1&2 Assay was ELVIS® HSV-ID and D3 Typing Test System.

The four-step work flow reduces the amount of hands-on time required to perform molecular testing. ARIES® cassettes are pre-loaded with all of the sample processing reagents needed. Simply add the sample to the side cassette, load the cassettes into the magazine, load the magazine into the instrument, and a run will start automatically.

* Intended Use (CE Marked)
The ARIES® HSV 1&2 Assay is a real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) based qualitative in vitro diagnostic test for the direct detection and typing of herpes simplex virus (HSV 1 and 2) DNA in cutaneous or mucocutaneous lesion specimens from symptomatic patients or in CSF from patients suspected of HSV infections of the central nervous system (CNS). The test is indicated for use with symptomatic individuals to aid in the diagnosis of HSV infections.
Negative CSF results do not preclude HSV 1 and HSV 2 infection and should not be used as the sole basis for diagnosis, treatment, or other patient management decisions.
The assay is not intended to be used for prenatal screening.
The ARIES® HSV 1&2 Assay (EU) is indicated for use on the ARIES® Systems.
ARIES® Systems are class 1(I) laser products.
Validation of the LIS compatibility must be performed by the end user.
