DeepChek®-HSV TK/POL Assay

K-18-UL2330

Description

The DeepChek®-HSV TK/POL Assay (K-18-UL2330) is intended to determine the presence of mutations within UL23 (thymidine kinase) and UL30 (DNA polymerase) conferring drug resistance to antiviral drugs through PCR/sequencing (NGS).

Methodology

DNA Sequencing • Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)
