Hi Concern78 No, a 5 day transit will have had no effect on the outcome of your test. I hope that this answers your question. Kind regards Gary Carpenter BioSure (UK) Limited

Hi Concern78 I completely understand your desire to make sue that you are using a product of the highest quality. Every batch of BioSURE HIV Self Tests that are placed on the market go through independent laboratory verification before they can be sold. This process ensures that the product is manufactured and supplied at the highest level of quality. It is possible that someone with HIV might test negative with a BioSURE test and positive with a lab test. But it is incredibly unlikely. But there is virtually no chance that two negative tests could both be wrong. I hope that this helps to put your mind at ease. Kindest Gary

Hello Again. Sorry for another question, but my hiv result is important for me. Do you notice any case when negative BioSure Hiv test checking same blood sample brought positive result in lab checking ? Do you keep checking quality of accuracy of your product ? Thank you.

Hi Concern78 Thanks for getting in touch. Two BioSURE HIV Self Tests with the same results will be reliable. The other thing is that night sweats are mostly associated with sero-conversion illness that occurs around 2-6 weeks after infection. So it is very unlikely that your night sweats and aches would be a consequence of an HIV infection that began 2 years ago. I hope that this helps. Kind regards Gary Carpenter BioSure (UK) Limited
