Conclusive result?

Are your results conclusive immediately if the test only picks up a negative result? Or must you wait the full 15 minutes for a conclusive result?

Hi Concerned02, you can usually see the result appear in a couple of minutes however I would always recommend looking again at 15 minutes to ensure the result is the same just in case a positive line was faint. The reason we say to wait 15 minutes is because after this time the background of the test strip will be completely clear and even the faintest line would be visible. I hope this makes sense.
