82192-6Herpes virus 6 DNA [Presence] in Cerebral spinal fluid by NAA with non-probe detectionActive

Term Description

This assay detects the presence of nucleic acid sequences from the Herpes virus 6 DNA in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) using PCR and non-probe based detection methods, such as melt curve analysis. This term was created for, but is not limited in use to, BioFire's FilmArray Meningitis/Encephalitis Panel, which is intended for the detection and identification of nucleic acids from multiple bacteria, viruses, and yeast directly from CSF obtained via lumbar puncture from individuals with signs and/or symptoms of meningitis and/or encephalitis.

Part Description

LP16712-9   Herpes virus 6
Human Herpes Virus 6 (HHV6) is a member of the Beta-herpesvirus subfamily. HHV6 infection is extremely common, with seroprevalence almost 100%. Primary infection results in a fever that may exceed 40 degrees Celsius and last for 3-5 days. Primary infection in children often results in fever followed by development of roseola or sixth disease. The virus exists as latent infection in lymphocytes and monocytes following the primary infection and may be reactivated in immunocompromised patients. Information from ARUP Laboratories 2007 01 08.
