Carrying out the test

I took the BioSure test. After three minutes I couldn’t see anything happening. So I pressed the tip of the test to the bottom of the buffer pot. Immediately I could see a response with the test changing colour and then a line appeared. No second line appeared. I’m just worried whether the test worked properly since the response happened immediately after I had pushed the test down to the bottom of the buffer. I thought there had to be a 3 min wait after the test hit the bottom of the buffer. Can I be confident that the test ran properly?
