Herpes simplex virus testing is important to identify whether you have the virus or whether symptoms you are experiencing are related to the virus.


HSV PCR swab

This can be used when a possible herpes symptom is present. It is accurate, identifies whether it is type 1 or type 2, and identifies exactly where the infection is located.

Blood tests

Herpes blood tests are useful when you are not experiencing symptoms but want to know if you have an infection. The test is cheap, identifies type 1 or 2, but doesn’t tell us the exact location of the infection.
