The invention disclosure documents some of James C. Sternberg's early work for Beckman Instruments. The sketches were signed and dated by Sternberg, Richard E. Poulson, David T. H. Jones, and W. S. Gallaway in May 1962.
Beckman Instruments entered the gas chromatograph business in 1956 with the acquisition of the successful Watts Manufacturing Company. Later that year, Beckman Instruments produced its first gas chromatograph, the GC-1, which was intended for laboratory use. Shortly after, Beckman Instruments produced a line of gas chromatographs for industrial use, which offered both automation and customization. These instruments were used by the petroleum industry and in the fight against air pollution.
