Medical - Medical (general) / Lab values
German term or phrase: $E
I am translating a set of lab results as part of a medical report. The lab results include a reference range and columns representing different lab dates and/or times. Some of the results show as follows:

Date/time Date/time Date/time
Quant. M-Gradient [g/dl] $E ok $E ok $E ok
Quant. M-Gradient % [%] $E ok $E ok $E ok

There's no reference range offered for these two tests . According to the legend, the "ok" means "Endbefund" (but the "ok" also appears next to nearly every other lab value).

For the sake of context, there's another set of tests showing a value of "$G" under one of the columns (I will ask about this term separately, if needed).

Any idea what is meant by the $E?

English translation:- machine code -
Explanation:
the term $E is probably machine code signifying a partition of different cells of a table (from which in this case the data was imported without the tabulary format, hence the machine code). Depending on the buginess of the software used lab reports can tend to have added machine code snippets interspersed in the text.
