This historic 1966 image depicted a laboratorian using an AutoAnalyzer, configured to determine uric acid levels in samples to be analyzed. The AutoAnalyzer, manufactured by the former Technicon Corporation, used a continuous flow analysis (CFA) technique, which automated what was once a manual process of sample analysis. Automation quantitatively increased the sample analyses per day, from but a few, to hundreds, or thousands per day, while maintaining a high degree of accuracy. Modern day protocols now call for the laboratorian executing such tasks, to wear personal protective equipment (PPE) including safety goggles, gloves, and a facemask.
