I am dr XXXXXXX and I will try my level best to help you.

A) HSV2 - neg (0.91) - It means any titre of below 0.91 is "negative" - for human simplex virus 2

B) HSV2 - equivocal 0.91-1.09 - it means neither positive nor negative (non conclusive result)

C) HSV2- pos-1.09 - it means any titre of above is 1.09 is "positive" for simplex.

In short
1) if titer says less then 0.91 its 100% negative for Simplex.
2) if titer says greater then 1.09 its 100% positive for simplex.
3) if titer reads between 0.91-1.09 its non conclusive may need retesting.

Hope it helps.
