Buffer solution exposed to air?


I recently took the Biosure self test and received a negative result, where the only line visible was the control line. My only concern is, when I performed the test I accidentally pierced the film on the buffer pot before inserting the test device. If the buffer solution is exposed to air, would this affect the results of my test? Thanks.

Hi Slightly-anxious, This will have no effect on the result of the test or the test itself. Your negative result is reliable. I hope this helps. Kindest regards, Becky.
