These specifications were likely produced during the development of the Glucose Analyzer. They include details about the electronic circuits, the weight and footprint of the finished instrument, and the rate of samples per hour.
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 enabled doctors to get fast, in-house results, instead of sending patients’ blood samples to a lab and awaiting a report.
