Talking about home testing for HIV

Would the temperature of the room have any effect?

Hi i just took my test. I took it in my bathroom and had the shower running in the back. Whilst the test ran it was quite hot and a bit steamy in the room, so i opened a window (right next to where the test was) to let some cold air in. Would the temperature of the room have any effect on the test and results?

Hi Paula, This should not have any affect on your result. The BioSURE HIV self test is fine to store at temperatures between 8-30°C. As long as you received your control line, your test result is accurate and reliable. Kindest regards, Becky
