When doing the self test kit i didnt let it stand up for 15 minutes. Does the test still perform correctly if its laying down? The test result came out negative with only one control line showing up

Hi Mikey. As long as you have a negative/control line then your test has worked and your result is conclusive as long as your exposure was more than 12 weeks ago. Lying your test down will not affect your result however may cause your test to run slightly slower (still within 15 minutes). I hope this helps put your mind at rest but please don't hesitate to contact me further. Kindest regards Francesca Bard, BioSure (UK) Ltd
