MRL Diagnostics and Meridian Diagnostics have recently designed herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2)-specific enzyme immunoassays for HSV-2 antibody detection. Blood donor sera were assayed for HSV-2 antibodies by both methods. The sensitivity, specificity, and efficiency were 97.9, 95.4, and 95.9% for the MRL assay and 83.2, 98.2, and 95.5% for the Meridian assay, respectively.
