I'm a little confused.  What is the self panel that you got?  Do you mean you ordered the tests yourself, but they were done at a lab?  Where are you that you did a bio test at home for hSV 2?  Can you help me understand this in more detail please?

I'm so sorry, but I'm still not understanding you.  
The self panel was run by a lab, right?  you ordered it, but you didn't run it yourself, right?  What you did run a home test for herpes that detects both HSV 1 and 2, you must be out of the US, right?
So who ordered the test that was positive for HSV 2?
Where are you?
I'm sorry, but I am still very confused about your situation.

An ELISA index value of >5 generally indicates infection.  I don't know why the bio test was negative.  You could try doing another lab ELISA to rule out any lab mix up.
