Hello, welcome to HCM. This test provide a number result called an "index value." <0.9 indicates a negative result. 0.9 - 1.1 is "equivocal", which means that it's unclear and another test should be run later. This result is rare. An index value above 1.1 is considered positive. Any value between 1.1 and 3.5 can be a "low positive" and could be false. Another test may be indicated. So you must repeat the test. Wish you good health.
