My apologies for the delayed response, haven't been able to check back Medhelp being caught up with projects and new business transition.
The count that you refer to is a random count that depends on several factors e.g. temperature of the body, time of the day, weather etc. As long as it's beyond 1.00 it is non reactive / negative. And, no there is no gradualism associated with that count, it is random.
Please accept your negative and refrain from speculating your negative result.
Hope this helps
