Test Line Orange

When I first conducted the test, the test looked negative. However, I noticed there was a line just under the tip of the foamy material in the bottom part of the test. I took the strip out and there was an orange line hidden behind the foam,

I was wondering if the test line could fall/move down? The line looked orange, not pink nor purple/red but I’m unsure if it’s a misplaced test line or perhaps where the blood began running up and strip and left a mark from the foam material.

Hi Paranoid Thanks for getting in touch. The test line can only appear in the position marked on the results reading part of the test. The lines are positioned very precisely. The mark that you can see is merely an overlap from your blood that is in the test. Your result will be negative. I hope that this helps. Kind regards Gary Carpenter BioSure (UK) Limited
