What should I do if I miss the 5 minute scanning timer after the 15 minute timer for the BD Veritor™️ At-Home COVID-19* Test?
The test stick requires 15 minutes to develop and should not be analyzed after the 5 minute scanning timer. Analyzing the test stick after the 5 minute scanning timer can lead to inaccurate test results. You should repeat the test with a new Test Kit.
