Talking about home testing for HIV

15 minutes timeframe

I took the test and waited 15 minutes . It was only one line.
I then threw it away . Would you see any changes after this timeframe? I noticed when I saw it in the bin some pink orange discoloration at the bottom of the strip. The solid control line was the only solid line though. Is that the solution seeping through?

Hi Ruuger98, the result at 15 minutes if your test result. You should not see any changes to this after the 15 minute time period. The red colour at the bottom of the strip is simply migration of the blood and buffer solution up the strip and is completely normal. I hope this answers your question and thank you for choosing BioSure. Kindest Regards Francesca Bard, BioSure (UK) Ltd
