Remove test stick from foil wrapper and remove the Replaceable Overcap. Holding the test stick by the Thumb Grip with the Absorbent Tip pointing downward and the Result Window facing away from your body, place the Absorbent Tip in your urine stream for 5 seconds only. It is recommended to use a watch/clock to time 5 seconds. (You may collect your urine in a clean, dry cup and immerse the entire Absorbent Tip in the urine for 5 seconds only if preferred.) With the Absorbent Tip still pointing downward, replace the Overcap* and lay the stick on a dry flat surface with the Result Window facing up. You may soon see a pink colour moving across the Result Window to indicate that the test is working. Read your results at 3 minutes, but within 10 minutes.
