did I use enough blood?

Please help I done the biosure test a week ago it was negative.. but I’m now thinking: did I use enough blood? Is it possible to give a negative result if the test didn’t have enough blood for test?

Yes, you have performed your test correctly. If you had done something wrong or not used enough blood you would not have got any lines. You can be confident in your negative result

So I must of used it correctly.. after 15 mins there was only 1 line which is negative. Which means I do not have job.

Hi Confused01 Thanks for contacting us and no it isn't possible to get a valid result if you have not applied enough sample. The control line on the BioSURE HIV Self Test is a true sample control line which is calibrated to the volume of blood sample applied. So if if you hadn't applied enough sample you would not have a valid negative test result. I hope that this helps. Kind regards Gary Carpenter BioSure (UK) Limited
