HIDR-BIO and HGRMX-BIO in a list of blood test results.

HIDR-BIO followed by Incice de distribution des GR: Red blood cell distribution width:

HGRMX-BIO is followed by Formue effectué par l'automate

Others in the same list are Neutrophils, Erythrocytes, etc. any ideas? I've done blood test before but never seen these two entries. The form looks as if it is produced by software.

English translation:RDW (red blood cell distribution width)
Explanation:
IDR is a common abbreviation for indice de distribution des globules rouges (red blood cell distribution width). My guess is that H could stand for hématologie or hématies.

I don't have a good guess for HGRMX - the "formule" is usually the white cell differential count. That fits with it being followed by neutrophils but I can't see it fitting with (H)GRMX. If you had any results or units it would help.
