Test Line positioning

Hi all, thank you for an incredible piece of equipment. I conducted my test and could see a very clear control line, in the position the instructions explained it would be. However, I can also see orange-y shadowing just behind the blue lip. Is it possible for a test line to fall off on transit? Or could it be an overlap of blood? Thanks.

Hi WorriedMan2. Thank you for your feedback and thank you for choosing BioSure. A positive line can only appear in an exact place. The red at the bottom of the strip is simply migration of the blood sample and buffer solution. This is quite common and is nothing to worry about. If you would like me to confirm your test result please feel free to email a picture of your test to Kindest regards Francesca Bard, BioSure (UK) Ltd
