Thanks and best,

No, there is no additional filtering. The %PF column is telling you what percentage of the original (Raw) clusters those reported PF clusters represent. You could back calculate from the data given how many Raw clusters there were (see table).

As an aside 15% PF is very poor for any Illumina instrument and the reported quality is very poor as well. You should discuss these issues with whomever performed the sequencing run.
