Also, is it possible that the first low positive value for the Herpselect ELISA (1.47) could have been due to zeroconverting at the time of the test? The test was collected on October 26th 2012 and resulted on October 31st 2012. My last possible date of exposure to HSV before the test was collected was before August 12th 2012. So the test was collected at least 2.5 months after the last possible date of exposure to HSV. Or is more than 2.5 months enough time for an ELISA test to yield an unequivocal positive result, meaning a result with an index value of 3.5 or above? Thanks again!
