Hi Joyce:

We been using an "HSV cocktail" for years with excellent results.  We
make a mixture of HSV-1 (B0114) and HSV-2 (B0116) from Dako at 1:1,000
each and incubate for 30' with Dako's EnVision+/AEC+ detection.  We do
not use antigen retrieval.    I'm not sure you really need HSV-2 since
HSV-1 will cross-react with HSV-II.

We have used combined HSV I & II from Biogenex. It has been on
backorder and now may be discontinued. We found an RUO from Biocare -
which we want to avoid. We can get I and II separately from DAKO and mix
What are you all doing? Is there a combined non ASR or RUO somewhere? 
Have a good weekend and thanks for your help,
