According to BD, the BD ProbeTec Herpes Simplex Viruses Qx Amplified DNA Assays are the first automated molecular assays for the detection and differentiation of HSV types 1 and 2 in clinician-collected external anogenital specimens.

The BD ProbeTec HSV-1 and HSV-2 Qx Amplified DNA assays are the first fully automated molecular tests for HSV types 1 and 2.

GenturaDx has developed a molecular diagnostic system that combines sample preparation and real-time PCR testing on a disposable cartridge in an effort to bring molecular testing to more laboratories at small- and medium-sized hospitals.

Focus and 3M are also developing a version of the influenza A/B/RSV test, as well as a test for herpes simplex virus, that would be suitable for use in moderate-complexity laboratories under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments act.
