Dutch term or phrase: Neutrofiele granulocyten (ruw)
In a table of assays I have failed miserably to work out the following:

Neutrofiele granulocyten (los)
1.5 - 7.5 10^9/L
Neutrofiele granulocyten (ruw)

I am alright with the "Neutrofiele granulocyten" but cannot see why one type would be "los" (presumably "free") while the other type is "ruw". Thanks for any help

Explanation:
I think they are making a distinction between the different tests:
an absolute neutrophil count and a complete blood count.

neutral  Barend van Zadelhoff: They are either counted in absolute numbers (2.0–7.0×10^9/l) or as a percentage (40 - 80%). How would you connect 'los' and 'ruw' with 'absolute count' and 'relative count'?
