All our Yesterdays: The pace of technological progress in clinical laboratory testing has been rapid and the lifetime of most analyzers is less than 10 years. To document and capture a special aspect of the history of clinical laboratory testing, Larry Kricka and Peter Wilding initiated this long-term project.

  1. All our Yesterdays: The pace of technological progress in clinical laboratory testing has been rapid and the lifetime of most analyzers is less than 10 years. In order to document and capture a special aspect of the history of clinical laboratory testing, Larry Kricka and Peter Wilding initiated in 2010 a long-term project for the History Division aimed at collecting and archiving images of clinical laboratory analyzers and point-of-care (POC) test devices, as well as assembling a collection of representative hand-held POC test devices.  The archival images “All our Yesterdays” will be made available via a link in the Clinical Chemist during 2011 at www.clinchem.org.
