Herpes viruses

Herpes viruses are known for their ability to establish lifelong infections. The virus remains in the body and may reactivate at any time. Herpes simplex is responsible for genital herpes; a virus commonly known from the labial infections of the mouth. Infections are usually not fatal in healthy individuals, but can be critical in cases of immune suppression as in organ transplantations. We offer LightMix® detection Kits for every herpes virus affecting humans.
