Exposure to air when testing?

When doing the test I spent around 15 seconds to collect my blood to the test device. Maybe it was too long? Will the long exposure to air affects the test result? Thanks.

Hi Elephant325, Your test result would not be affected by the exposure to air. As long as you tested within an hour of opening the pouch then your test is fine. Kindest regards, Becky
