Talking about home testing for HIV

Quick result

Just I did the Biosure test and the results was negative after two minutes one line on the top – has that worked ok because the single line appeared in two minutes? I did wait for 15 minutes but the results was the same , also how accurate is the test after 6 weeks of unprotected sex?

Hi Schim, the control/negative line will only appear if the test has been performed correctly. The BioSure HIV self test tests for antibodies and everyone produces these at different rates. The sole issue with at testing at 6 weeks post exposure is only 95% of people would have antibodies present. I hope this answers your question. Kindest regards Francesca Bard, BioSure (UK) Ltd
