control and test lines


I took the Biosure test 8 weeks after possible exposure.

I’m just wondering, are the control and test lines always separate as in spaced out like the example image given in the kit?

Hi unsure guy, Yes the control line and test line are positioned as shown on the IFU provided in the test kit. If the only line visible was the control line then your result is negative. Since you have tested 8 weeks since your last possible exposure, your negative result is a good indication of your status but please be sure to retest at 12 weeks for a conclusive result. I hope this helps, kind regards Becky.
