Re: Herpes Zoster

From:Phyllis Davie

Dear Linda,
    We offer an antibody test for Herpes Zoster (Varicella Zoster, Chemicon
cat# MAB8612, clone M1).  It works well on formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded
tissues.  We have only tested it on human samples.  In tests at our lab, it
does NOT cross-react with HSV, RSV, CMV, EBV or Adenovirus.
    I work at PhenoPath Laboratories, a pathology reference laboratory.  We
offer both clinical and research services.  If you have any further
questions, please feel free to contact me.
