Varicella zoster virus (VZV) is one of eight herpes viruses known to infect humans. It commonly causes chicken-pox in children and both shingles and postherpetic neuralgia in adults. Primary VZV infection results in chickenpox (varicella), which may rarely result in complications including encephalitis or pneumonia. Even when clinical chickenpox symptoms have resolved, VZV remains dormant in the nervous system of the infected person (virus latency), in the trigeminal and dorsal root ganglia. In about 10-20% of cases, VZV reactivates later in life producing a disease known as herpes zoster or shingles. Serious complications of shingles include postherpetic neuralgia, zoster multiplex, myelitis, herpes ophthalmicus, or zoster sine herpete.

H-DiaVZVTM is a trusted and easy-to-use molecular diagnostic CE-IVD kit designed to qualitatively detect the Varicella zoster virus in biological samples (bronchoalveolar lavage fluid, biopsy tissue, vesicular fluid, aqueous humour, corneal scraping, cerebrospinal fluid, amniotic fluid, plasma, or serum) collected from potentially infected patients using real-time PCR.
