Herpes can't be detected in biopsy done to miscarriage tissue .
The biopsy is done to check the fetal materials for possible abnormalities such molar pregnancy or other chromosomal disorders which may have caused abortion.
Herpes virus is a viral infection and can be detected by viral culture or PCR . The material should be taken from the sores if viral culture is done or from blood and tissue from sore if PCR is done.
