Swabs can be typed with a secondary antibody test if they are a culture. Sometimes this isn’t done, but make sure you ask.

Some swabs are tested with PCR. This will be type specific.

Type 1 is indeed different from type 2.. type 1 is less harsh for most people. Sometimes even no outbreaks at all after the first.
