I recently took the test

Hi I recently took the test but forgot to check it was working after 3 mins and didn’t realise until the 15 min mark! Pushed the test down and it started working straight away! Will my result still be accurate?

Thanks for the prompt response! The test showed a negative line and the exposure was longer then 12 weeks!

Hi Johnny9922. As long as you have received a negative line then your test has worked, this can only appear if enough blood has been used and your test has run as it should. If your exposure was more than 12 weeks ago your negative result will be conclusive. I hope this helps put your mind at rest. Thank you for choosing BioSure.
