The human herpesvirus family members, in particular herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) and herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2), are abundant and extremely contagious viruses with a high seroprevalence in the human population emphasizing the importance of studying their biology. Hence, the propagation and purification of virus stocks constitute a key element in laboratory work.
