This memorandum represents an early discussion of the development of the glucose analyzer, including the potential of an implanted capsule to maintain insulin levels and the Helipot microcircuitry expertise that could be brought to bear.
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.
