Cell-Dyn 4000 Automated Analyzer Interface

Today I started work on another automated analyzer interface, this time for the CD4000. I expected that instruments in the same series would be similar, but I was wrong: much like consumer electronics, the individual instruments seem to differ greatly from model to model.

I am still using the same protocol and still using the same very good framework from the client. But this time I will be adding a feature entirely my own: an automated Audit module to support the new-to-the-client feature of....autoverification! Rather behind the industry curve, the client has decided to adopt autoverification but they want strict monitoring and tight control, which is OK by me.
