A tiny bit is OK, but the bottom line is the calibration must remain intact.

It is important that the mrem remain intact! Remember that for the rem dose rate meters there are classically 8 neuts/sqcm/sec at 1 mrem for 2.45mev. This is your key to you data! Counts on the device mean nothing per se.
