Type-specific serologic tests for human herpes simplex virus (HSV) are critically important for sexually transmitted disease evaluation. We compared the LIAISONĀ® HSV-1 and HSV-2 Type Specific assays relative to an established commercial ELISA. The overall agreement of the chemiluminescence immunoassay versus the ELISA assay was 99.6% (HSV-1) and 100% (HSV-2). The LIAISONĀ® methodology has several advantages.
