White shadow

Hi, I done the test and the control line is obvious but where the test line is I can see a very very faint white line where the positive line would be. Is this normal with a good set of eyes to be able to see the shadow of the line?

Hi Brummy Thanks for getting in touch. It is not a common thing but we know that it can happen. There are chemicals sprayed onto the strip where the lines are so we know that this can give a very slight reflection. This is NOT a test line. The line would be obvious and the same colour as the control line. The result you describe should be read as negative. I hope that this helps. Kind regards Gary Carpenter BioSure (UK) Limited
