My Test Result

I have taken the home test and followed instructions.a test line appeared soon and appears to be black.during my 15 minutes wait I didn’t see the blood mixture rising up the tube.does this mean my test result is not accurate.there was a clear line in the tube though and no other line.
Many thanks

Hi Rio60 Thanks for getting in touch. Sometimes the initial progression of the test happens very quickly, so the fact that you didn't notice it doesn't mean that the test did not run correctly. The presence of the control line verifies that the test has been conducted correctly. The control line will only be present if you have applied enough sample and enough buffer and that this mixture has run through the test completely. I hope that this answers your question. Kind regards Gary Carpenter BioSure (UK) Limited
