large unstained cells
Explanation:
If all 30 000 LUC results reported
by our laboratory each year were
seen by a clinician, calculations show
that 23 000 results per year (of which
2500 are abnormal) could not be interpreted.
After this was revealed,
the laboratory made a footnote saying
“lymphocyt? virocyt? Stem cell?
(Peroxidase-negative cells (**Large unstained
cells 5 LUC)**)” to explain the
meaning and to remind clinicians of
both viral disease and leukemia as
possibilities.

** LUC, an acronym for “large unstained
cells”**, is displayed on our
automatic cell counter (Technicon
H3) when large peroxidase-negative
cells cannot be characterized further
as large lymphocytes, “virocytes”, or
stem cells.

Frequently the reference range is given as cells per liter: --->

0.00 - 0.40 x 10^9 cells / l . This is the same as that appearing in your source (it's just a smple conversion problem), which is:

0.00 - 0.40 x 1000 cells / microliter.
