HSV-1 Blood Test - More Information

The HSV-1 test, also known as an HSV-1 blood test, HSV-1 lab test and herpes simplex virus type 1 test, measures the HSV-1 IgG blood antibody level.

HSV-1 is usually implicated in causing oral lesions commonly known as cold sores. It is thought that more than half of the people in the United States have an HSV-1 infection. In the setting of an HSV-1 infection, a positive test result will typically show up within four weeks of exposure. While cold sores are commonly seen with an HSV-1 infection, many people infected with HSV-1 have no symptoms at all. This HSV-1 test is often ordered with the HSV-2 test as part of the herpes test panel.

To get an HSV-1 test near you, just order online and get tested at the Quest Diagnostics lab that you chose. Once your HSV-1 IgG lab report is ready, it will be downloadable electronically. As can be seen on the sample HSV-1 lab results above, the HSV-1 IgG antibody blood levels are reported as a number and can be compared against the reference ranges provided by the lab.
