The LB-2 Medical Gas Analyzer replaced the LB-1. It measured alveolar CO2, along with nitrous oxide, halothane, ehtrane, forane, various halogenated ethers, and carbon monoxide.
The Model OM-11 Oxygen Analyzer was designed for cardiopulmonary applications but was later marketed to the auto industry.
Developed from a Linus Pauling design during WWII, the technology behind Beckman Instruments’ oxygen analyzers ended up doing such diverse jobs as monitoring astronauts’ respiration, maintaining packaged food safety, and preventing blindness in newborn babies.
