    A simple method of interfacing clinical and research laboratory equipment with a microcomputer is described. A four-channel buffer system has been constructed which stores data generated from laboratory instruments and then transmits the data directly to a microcomputer. The system is highly flexible with respect to the type of laboratory equipment and model of computer that can be interfaced, and it allows for virtually automatic data acquisition and analysis.
