Norgen Biotek Corporation

Urine-Based HSV-1&2 PCR Detection Kit (Cat# 31700 )

A ready-to-use system for the isolation, detection and differentiation of HSV-1 and HSV-2 from urine using end-point PCR detection

  • Rapid isolation of high quality viral DNA from urine
  • Ready-to-use 2X PCR Mastermix
  • Detect and differentiate between HSV-1 and HSV-2
  • High sensitivity and specificity
  • Multiplex PCR with an isolation control and a PCR control
  • Primer set and controls also available separately
  • Ideal for use in:
    1.  Surveillance of Drug Resistant Pathogens
    2.  Epidemiologial Studies
    3.  Field Surveillance of Pathogens
    4.  Surveys


  • Non Invasive, Non Infectious Sample Source – Urine is not infectious for most  human pathogens.
  • Isolate High Quality, Inhibitor-Free DNA – Removal of highly concentrated salts, metabolic wastes and proteins provides high quality, concentrated viral DNA.
  • Rapid Procedure – Isolate, detect and differentiate between HSV-1 and HSV-2 in under 3 hours.
  • Accuracy in Interpreting Results – The amplification bands are clearly distinct, and the melt curves do not overlap
  • High Sensitivity and Specificity  – The limit of detection is less than 200 VP/mL of urine 
  • Purchase Primer Set and Controls Separately – The HSV-1&2 Master Mix (with primers and PCR control), as well as the positive control and negative control can be purchased separately
