1. Is this test possibly impacted by Biotin use?
I honestly don’t know the answer to that question. I think it is possible
2. Is this test considered an ELISA test?
3. I saw you mentioned a while back that Quest may change brands from the Herpeselect to DiaSorin and that we don’t yet know the effectiveness of the DiaSorin test. Was this change ever made or is the Quest Diagnostics HSV 1/2 IGG,TYPE SPECIFIC AB test still the Herpeselect test?
At this point, I don’t know which test they are doing, but an article published online recently does show a very high rate of false positives in the low positive range on the test that they are currently doing.
