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??

@StuckInARug

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! 😫

Do another, with no swabbing, just the liquid, and see why the line looks like, for comparison.

Did you time it? If after the time 15 or 30 min has passed it doesn't count as positive. Check instructions.

If this was a pregnancy test, I'd be assuming positive. You can invert the image to get a better view?

My positive showed very clear line with absolutely no doubt. I don't think that's positive

I could see the line in the second one before you inverted it. I think you need to get a PCR OP.

I think the faint line you can see is just whatever is there to show a coloured line.

As with a pregnancy test I was under the impression that the line needed to be coloured not just a shadow.

Anyway you are good to be getting a pcr. Fingers crossed for negative.

I can definitely see a faint line I’m afraid . I would say this is a positive LFT. We all use flow flex regularly in this house and don’t get the watermark others are describing ( and we are thorough at doing them) . Terrible timing 😢

I think it's positive. I don't know why people think it has to be as dark as the control line. This was my sons positive. I'd be getting a pcr.

Prior to having COVID I did a LTF and couldn't work out if there was a super faint line. I was holding it up to the light and everything for a good 5 mins to work out if it was or not. Couple of days later did another LTF and it came up positive after 10 mins. Got a PCR the next day and results in 16 hours later. Positive for COVID!

If you are uncertain I'd just get the PCR test done!!

When my son had Covid his lateral flows just produced dark lines really quickly. As clear as you like. I don't think that line is anything to go by.

Do another one OP.

That's not a positive. My husband just recently had covid and his line was strong and remained strong after 15 mins.
