    The instruments filling this room -- Beckman Instruments' System TR, introduced in 1973 -- were the first automated analyzer for clinical enzymes. The two men in the background of this image are unidentified.

    • 1975 – 1984

    Beckman's Biogamma II was introduced in 1975. Radioimmunoassay (RIA) is a technique for measuring the antigen concentration. Known quantities of radioactive (labeled or “hot”) antigens and antibodies are mixed, then…

    • circa 1979

    The Glucose Analyzer was developed by James Sternberg in 1969 and was one of several very successful medical testing and analysis instruments that Beckman Instruments produced in the 1970s. Its size, speed, and price…

    • circa 1979

    Beckman's Creatinine Analyzer 2 debuted in 1979. Creatinine, a byproduct of muscle metabolism, can be measured to determine renal function.

    • 1975 – 1984

    Beckman first marketed a chloride/CO2 analyzer in 1975.

    The instrument simultaneously measured chloride and carbon dioxide. It was used in clinical settings to analyze serum, spinal fluid, and sweat.

    • 1979 – 1988

    BUN stands for Blood Urea Nitrogen.

    Creatinine, a byproduct of muscle metabolism, can be measured to determine renal function.

    • 1975 – 1984

    Beckman introduced the KLiNa Flame System, a flame photometer with attached diluter and printer, in 1971. The company first marketed a chloride/CO2 analyzer in 1975.

    Flame photometers determine the presence and…

    • 1974 – 1983

    This instrument, introduced in 1974, can run both blood glucose and blood urea nitrogen (BUN) analyses.

    The Glucose Analyzer was developed by James Sternberg in 1969 and was one of several very successful medical…
