Herpes 1 and 2 IgM and IgG Panel

The Herpes 1 and 2 IgM and IgG Panel testing package makes available an extensive and comprehensive screening for both recent and past exposure to the Herpes Virus.  Herpes is a common viral infection which is spread through skin to skin contact of the infected area.

Type 1 and Type 2 are the prevalent form of Herpes.

Herpes 1 is the weaker, more common form of Herpes.  It is most commonly associated with oral herpes.  Herpes 2 is the stronger form of the herpes virus and is most commonly associated with genital herpes.

It is important to know that Type 1 and Type 2  of herpes can be contacted in the mouth or genital depending on the mode of transmission.

Herpes infections are often symptomless.  When there are symptoms, they are usually a temporary outbreak of one or more sores around the infected area.  A person without symptoms of herpes can still spread the virus if he/she is infected.

IgM antibodies have short development cycles after infection and die after several months. IgG antibodies have a development cycle of 4-12 weeks after infection and persist for life.

Testing for both antibody types can be helpful if a person does not know the onset of their exposure.

Results for these tests are quantitative and provide numerical results.

Results are typically returned within 1-3 business days. We take every precaution to ensure you receive your results on time.

Incubation Period:

The average incubation period for the Herpes IgM test ranges from about 5 days-5 weeks. After a few months from the time of infection, a person usually starts to symptomless and the infection is undetectable with this test. Some people may be detectable for the Herpes IgG test as early as 4 weeks from suspected exposure to the virus although most of the population would be detectable with this test after 12 weeks.

Requirements:

This herpes testing package does not have special requirements.
