Automated analyzers are weird: they are sophisticated in every way but the way in which they handle I/O. This has been an introduction to some concepts for me:
- ASTM E1381/95 a rather outdated, clearly serial protocol rather reminiscent of MS-DOS block-based communication protocols of yesteryear.
- Worklists for analyzers which are derived from LIS orders
- Analyzer flags and how to present them
- Verification UIs
