Flying tomorrow. Is this a positive LFT???
162

StuckInARug · 02/12/2021 12:18

I know it’s very very very faint and I’m not even sure it’s there. Photo taken 18 minutes after a 15 minutes test. What do you think??

Looks clear to me. I wouldn't take that as a positive.

I can see the merest hint of a line.

I cannot see a 2nd line in that pic. If in doubt, take another and try to be a bit more 'thorough' in your swabbing. Good luck!

You need a second line at the T for it be positive, unless it's a bad photo I can't see any indication that's positive.

Can’t see a line. Even a faint one

I can’t see anything. If you do another one read it at 15 minutes and then put it in the bin. No reason to check again later as the 15 minutes are already more than what the test actually needs for it to detect properly.

I can definitely see the faintest colourless line on the T when I look at it against light, can’t capture it on a photo. Doing another one now…..

Hmm I do see a line in that 2nd pic op. Will you have time to get a PCR test result before your flight? I would be inclined to try your best to do so. We just all had tests and results were back for us in about 19 hours.

I see the faintest colourless line on that last photo. Are they 15 or 30 min tests? You shouldn’t be reading them at 30 if they’re 15 min ones.

Flight is tomorrow 11am. Will need to see if I can get a 30 minute PCR this afternoon.

BHX3000 it’s a 15 minute test but the beginning of the faint line was there at 15 minutes, I just managed to get a better photo at 30 minutes.

I can’t see the lines but if you can, doing a pcr is the right thing.

The flowflex nasal only tests seem to be getting a lot of false positives. There's been a thread on MN this morning about it.

I get a faint colourless line every time I do one of these and have done for weeks/months. I've had various PCRs along the way, all negative and the other type of LFT also comes up completely negative.

I'm wondering whether it's that you can see where 2 different litmus papers cross or whether some people's saliva just always gives a shadow where the test line is.

You know what, there’s no line on the NHS LFTs but the fit to fly one has the very faint line. I think I agree with INeednewshoes it’s possible that it’s where the paper changes - that’s exactly what my husband said.

The same day PCR where I live is £169, not sure what to do! 😫

I questioned that on here last week too, whether is there always a colourless line that darkens when Covid is detected

They’re exactly the flowflex nasal only ones

My DS had lines like that for 2 days before getting a very strong positive LFT and covid symptoms (confirmed by PCR)

PCR results came back very quickly for us (12 hours) so if you get one now on the basis you've had positive LFT it might come back before you go?

I would pay for the pcr to be sure. It sucks though.
